When it Rains... It just rains.

I took a walk in the rain today.
It was cold rain, but I was warm. I was thinking, and pondering…
How far will I have to walk in this cold rain?

I walked around a pond, and it began to rain harder,
My feet were cold, and the rain was wet,

I kept wondering, How far will i have to walk in this cold rain?

I heard the birds scatter at my presence,
the grass under my feet gave into the mud,

my face was wet,
my jacket soaked,
My camera tucked tightly under my shirt,

How far will I have to walk in this cold rain?

My skin started to tighten,
I began to shiver,
my hand were clentched,
My eyes burned,
… and I walked…

The tears never came,

but they wanted to

…and I walked…

I was alone

…and I walked…

I was tired

…and I walked…

I took a walk in the rain today.
…but I made it home.

Sometimes we seek out the rain, other times the rain might find us. Sometimes we just have to keep walking.
