The Rain Comes

A prayer
An omen
The messenger
Of joy,
The bringer
Of fear.

And hideous,
It shows its face.
And hateful,
It descends
From some place

It bathes,
It destroys -
It's laughter,
It's screaming.
And feared,
It comes.

The inhabitants
Of this earth
Cry -
For happiness
Or terror?
What will happen
When it all ends?

The god,
The devil,
The thing from above -
Dare to immerse
In it.

The rain,
The rain!
Let it wash
Your tears
Your fears
Your dreams

I'm incredibly sorry I haven't replied sooner!  I was away from TeenInk for a while.

Thank you!  And I'd love to check out your work. :)
