A storm of bitterness means chaos and trauma to our ships as we sail the seas of despair.

A storm of bitterness

Is brewing around us

There’s an uproar in our very souls

- – -

Bitterness drives us

Up crooked walls

It makes our ascent

I mean those jolting leaps

Chaotic and traumatic

- – -

Bitterness leaves that awful taste

In our mouths

One of gall

That’s frolicking

Like crazy madmen

Before our irresistible eyes

Bitterness is a mighty storm very well

That tosses our ships

On seas of dispair

- – -

It’s the bitterness that drowns

The passengers on board

It’s a hard

And violent lesson to learn

    nice one, it reminds me of the lyrics of a song titled life is like a boat.
    “…we’re rowing in a boat of fate, the waves keep on coming and we can’t escape”,
    anyway, this ‘bitterness’ will definitely teach us something in life, fortunately ^^
