Never Rained

Tue, 01/10/2017 - 04:47 -- crls

As I sit by

I recall the dark

All the tears that I could not shed

 

In the desert park

No life around

No signs at all

 

I've stayed strong

For so long

I love my growth

 

All the pain that I went through

All the shades of red & blue

Blood, tears, and bruises

 

My eyes begin to rain

The fire around me goes

Purple flowers start to show

 

My pain it waters 

Nourishes all life around

My heart and land, they pound

 

Now all the darkness

That's poisoned me

Is replaced with lights and seas

 

As I sit by

Seas of my tears

The light within me grows

 

My self created garden

Grows and reaches towards me

I never believed this could be

 

To believe my pain

To believe my tears that rain

Can create life, such beauty

 

Now all I see

Are waves of seas

Oh and all my life that's come from me

 

So many years

Looking below, but not anymore

For I look to what I used to feel was unknown 

 

I look above

Thank the love

Thank the pain

 

Without it

I could have never grown

I could have never rained
