The Rain - Poem by Julian Escamilla

Drops of rain fall all around me
Reminding me of the pain
The pain I once felt
It's a reminder that it will wash away
And time will make me see
See the things that clouded my mind
Broke my heart
Tortured my soul
And damaged my spirit
The rain isn’t misery
It’s a cleansing of the spirit
The one that senses darkness
And washes it away
When we’ve reached
A breaking point.
With the rain
The sunlight shines
Sunlight that lightens our heart
And brightens our soul
Our souls are lifted
And alive once again.
Love is awakened once more
And with that love
The sunlight shines even brighter
And the road to recovery
Has begun
