Maybe it was the rain

I woke stale and grey today…

Knowing there was, must be, some greater purpose

This existence in me…

Maybe it’s the feeling I’ve not failed

But the system that failed us!-

Failing to validate OUR existence…

‘Who are you and what do you do?’

I’m trying to survive, not kill myself-

Like Kurt Cobain, running, hiding from the pain…

Maybe I’d like a drug, to quiet the fear, ease the ache…

But more likely, it’s just the rain

Bringing all this insane,

While I taste the raindrops,

Looking at the sky, thinking of the one

Who’s made me try to be alive.
