Favorite Quote:
Happiness is only a theory.
Fate is my only enemy.

I shall never see again
Something as marvelous as the rain
It runs off of rooftops of houses
Of trees
It overflows creeks that run up to your knees
It chases and races down lanes and down streets
It sloshes and trudges with several feets
It gives things life and can take it away
If only it would rain everyday

This poem made me smile. I love it. It's so pure and honest, and it's mesmerizing; you take the time to identify the rain and it really makes you see the beauty in something that resembles sadness, or sorrow. Wonderful Job
