Rain Reaching Radicalism This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   How Radical is the Rain?
Plummeting from a darkened sky,
Dampening landsthat once went dry;
Eroding soil's nutrients.

Smuggling weapons indisguise,
Aggravating the Acidity,
Obstructing peace and quiet.
Teardrops, Dew drops
These structures are not.

The Rage of the Rain hasbeen made to estrange,
Tyrannical targets,
Unbridled, Untamed;
NatureRemains a part of the Wild!

No one can be to blame,
For storm cloudsare the harbinger of Rain;
Powerful pockets meant to contain the moisture oversporadic times
Until it is forced to relinquish its domain,
And there is anoutpouring from the skies;
To quench the sun-parched cracking smile upon theface of Mother Earth.
Now, would that be considered Radical?

Love this!!!!!!!!!! It's so, almost, rebellious, that is, saying that rain is radical. What a unique idea!!! And beautiful, too.

I wish that I could favorite this, but alas, Teenink is, -how would they say?- screwed up.
