"Failure is a bruise not a tattoo"
-Jon Sinclair

I hear the music
of millions of raindrops falling.

Each and every one of them joining together
to make a tiny river
that slithers down the street.

It continues to grow
 wider and wider
as it eats up every leaf.

For once
I am at peace.
No other sounds surround me.

It's as if the world has frozen.
The trees stand still
like giant skyscrapers in New York.

There are no cars in sight.
The sky is gray
And the world is crying.

It’s tears will
nurture the plants and animals
and seep into the brown spongy soil.

Soon it’s lullaby will send me to sleep.

That is why I always say,
I love rainy days.

"My music will tell you more about me than I ever will, don't ask me what i'm feeling, ask me what song am I listening to." "I think I'm afraid too be happy, because whenever I get to happy, something bad always happens."

Touching and poignant. Well done my friend.
