Memento Mori- It means that nothing lasts forever, no one is immortal, sooner or later you will die and things will come to an end. It also helps you realize that while you are living you should do the most with your life, live life to the fullest.

The rain...

It can last for what seems like forever

Or it can last for... Just a moment

The skies and that burning sun are covered

Taken over

The blue skies turn to different shades of grey and black

Hiding the brightness that blinds us

As the rain falls to the Earth

It appears as if the sky itself is weeping

For the sorrows that it has endured and watched us suffer through

The rain

Can be healing as it nurtures the plants and animals

That it falls upon

It can also be

Wrathful and Revenge driven

Taking out its pain on both those that deserve it

And the Innocents

With cascading floods

That take any life that is unfortunate enough

To be caught in its path


But for me, when it rains

The tears I hold back can flow

Yet still be hidden from the rest of the world

Only the rain

Sees that I am crying

The author's comments:

Some of us hold in our pain, our sorrow, our suffering...

We don't show it freely or at times willingly

The rain sees everything yet doesn't judge, it will hide your tears from everyone, allow you your release.
