If We Knew - Poem by adeniran oluokun

The rain is all we see
We couldn’t see her when she was in pain,
The sun is all we see
We should have seen him when he ran insane,
She wouldn’t have left if she saw my footprints in her heart,
She wouldn’t have neglected me if she saw where I sat,
I wouldn’t have been in the storm
if I knew the rain would come,
We would have been if we didn’t throw our roses in the bin,
I didn’t pick up the call,
Yes I knew it was better we fall,
Than to think we could stay strong and stand up tall…….
