Rain Shower


God causes the sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain for the righteous and the unrighteous.

-Matthew 5:45



Most days I stand still

When the sky begins to rain

Letting nature dictate to me

How I should feel

What my condition should be


I’ve imagined it a shower

Somehow cleansing me

Washing away the stains

Of my dirty, daily life


Today I avoided the rain

Feeling too dirty

Much too stained

To be cleaned

Even by the rain
