"Live your life as you wish, its like possessing a coin, you may spend it however you please; but you can only spend it once, so spend it wisely" - Thomas Kinworth

No clouds to hold me so Ill not fall, sheltered for awhile and then turned out.

I am a fragile rain drop. I have been poured out upon the face of the earth as an offering to the lady.

As I fall, slowly, the beauty of mother earth stares at me with needy eyes, i see she thirsts.

I am only a drop of rain, what shall I profit?

But I am recieved by eager bodys of green with grattitude. I replenish the souls of many.

I now know though Im only a drop of rain, that I am great in the heart of the forest.

I am her breath of life.

The author's comments:
I hope that this poem will inspire young people to do great things. Like the drop of rain who was afraid to fall, we sometimes think that we are too young to matter or to make a difference, but one person can accomplish so much if they will leave their comfort zone aside and make an effort.
