Rain platters down theĀ 

windowpane, drowning out sun

but still exclusive.


The author's comments:

This is dedicated to all the people in the countries who work hard for very little money, not even being able to go to school because they have to work for their families, but have to use up around half of their wages just to buy water. One of the reasons being it is illegal for them to collect rainwater and they are crushed mercilessly for peaceful protests.

Thank you, it was written with strong inspiration in mind, and I'd really like for it to send a message out there.

I really love this! I love how you added the emotion in it and you made it simple yet complex, tiresome yet energetic, sorrowful yet happy. It's so hard to write like this, you're truly gifted!
