"Your too smart to be ruled by your heart."

As the sky begins to weep,
I look out my window.
So many of the little droplets of water,
Just sit there,
Waiting for a tear
To pass atop of them,
And carry it softly down the window pane.

I think of life.
So many people deserve to
Be Appreciated,
But they just sit there,
Waiting… just waiting for some sort of….
Magic to occur,
That will finally put them in the spotlight,
And bring them to their destiny.

But sometimes,
We have to create our path.
We have to form our own rain,
That can help us find our way,
And show us what we can become.

The author's comments:
I wrote this on a plane ride home from Nashville Tennessee. When I was younger, my dream was to become a country singer and make it big in Nashville. We were stuck in Nashville because our flight was cancelled but it opened my eyes to my prior dream. It made me think about how i threw away a dream that I could of made come true.
