Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

It’s raining
It’s been raining for days
Has the whole world been raining?
It’s hard to imagine sun
In other places
When there is only clouds where you are

when it begins to rain
the whole sky turns gray
how can the sky be blue there
when it is gray here?
The patter of the rain on my windows
Reminds me of a clean earth

Perhaps this time
It will rain enough
To clean the earth
Of all it’s filth and grime
And then the sun will come out again

:''') So beautiful!! I love how you  used rain as a metaphor for how sometimes when things in your own life are going wrong, it's hard to imagine that someone else's life may be great at he same moment and that if the world finally experiences enough sorrow it will become a better place! Keep writing!
