I was waiting outside
In the cold, relentless rain
I waited for hours
Again and again
Waiting for the sun
That never came
So don’t tell me it gets better
Because it never did
The shower crept up my toes
Covered my eyes and filled my nose
The water in my lungs, I didn’t oppose
So now I am nothing more
Than the puddle you see on the floor
On those cold, rainy days
Maybe now people will remember me
Remember me always

The rain always brings out the gloomy side of me, and boy, has it been raining lately.
On a side note, let’s not wait for a tragedy to want to give help to those that need it.Now is the time. So give that smile to a stranger and that hand to someone who’s fallen down.
Make a change.
