“Someday I shall become a tree, and the wind will sing in my branches, and the sun will dance on my leaves, and I shall be strong and beautiful through all the seasons.”

Oh, sweet sorrow, you're raining down on me
Licking my mouth, carrying salt to the sea
Wash away everything, expose all my colors
I walk with you, rain, away from the others

Streaming through rock, cage-less and young
Fall into myself, from my toes I have sprung
Soften the concrete with my face pressed to the floor
The holes shouting, porous, they beg me for more

Start a new season and wash away blandness
Prismacolored, pure, but I didn't plan this
Rain, condemned to a life of continual fall
The streak on my cheek is your silent call
