by Andrea Laws

a crisis is a
dancing black sheet
covering new existence from
manifestation towards
higher consciousness

a crisis is a
hidden devil
needing to test the
realization between
morality and free will

a crisis is a
heavy chain
waiting to be
thrown into character and
becoming you

a crisis is a
funnel cloud
spiraling to show
strength through

a crisis is a
challenge worth
seeking, to share in
everything wanted and
