Lightning Strikes

Lightning strikes 
When you least expect it
Often in the same place twice
Despite tales to the contrary
You see the storm gathering
You know there is danger ahead
Still you go forward 
You had a choice
Stay or go?
Left or right? 
North or south?
East or west?
Live or die?
There is no turning back
Onward, forward. into the storm
The lightning crashed
The thunder pealed
The clouds cleared
You survived
On the other side 
There is hope
