Rainy Day Inspiration

woman in rainI don’t write poetry often but I was inspired by the rain beating against my window this morning. Enjoy!

STROLL

I took a stroll in the rain today

I wanted to feel the tears of God cascade down my body as I shed my own

I needed Him to wash away the pain I felt because of the things that man said and did to me

The lies

The empty promises

Meaningful words like future, love, mine that he threw about so carelessly

I took a stroll in the rain today

The cold wetness didn’t compare to the chill I felt when I realized that I was alone yet again

Alone isn’t so bad but lonely is torture

Starting over is the last thing I want to do

I took a stroll in the rain today

My heart hummed a song

The rain as it hit the ground kept time

The cars whizzing by were my off key band

My feet as they trudged along added timbre

My song was sad with a twinge of hope

No one heard it but me and God

I took a stroll in the rain today so I could ask God a question

Why?

He said you always pray and ask me to remove the men from your life who aren’t right for you

Then when I do you cry

Why?

I took a stroll in the rain today

To feel God’s embrace as He kept me safe
