I Walk In The Rain

I walk in the rain
where no one can see

Eyes red from crying
tear-stained cheeks

The wind grows colder
I wrap my jacket tighter

As raindrops fall
my tears join in the puddles

My pain is invisible
to all who pass me

And so I continue
to walk in the rain
where no one can see

The author's comments:
My mom has been a single parent since I was 2, and after I turned 16, she got remarried. He wasn't violent, he just had a tendency to drink a lot. After his first DUI, mom stopped doing anything about his problem, and I became midly depressed.
