The Girl in the Rain This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Dressed in a sundress
Under the pouring rain
She twirled around
Raising her hands to the air
Droplets fell onto her hair

Barefooted as she started dancing
Letting her hair free
She's the girl in the rain
The water numbed all her pain

Her grief hidden behind a mask
She lifted her eyes to the sky
And started to dance
Throwing away all her sorrow
She started to smile again
She's the girl in the rain

Nobody knows who she was
No one knows where she came from
All they knew she was silent
Like the wind in everyone's hair

Soaked, wet and cold
Ignored, rejected and unappreciated
Like the roses in her hands
Wilted and dead
She let the rain fall onto her head
She's the girl in the rain

Everything was different
After she left
All they could remember
Time and time again
Silent from all her pain
She was the girl in the rain
