VIEW FROM A WINDOW

Open the window.

Let the fresh air inside.

Look out at the bright lights.

The people hurrying on the streets.

The tall buildings.

Are people asleep behind the dark windows?

Are there parties being thrown behind the lit ones?

So much activity.

So much to see.

What is that?

A shooting star.

A sure sign that we are never alone.

LOST IN THE RAIN

Lost in the rain.

Beaten down.

Alone.

Drifting.

Tired.

Wet.

Ready to give up.

On life.

On the world.

Curled up in a ball.

Ready for my last breath.

Then the unexpected happens.

The sun comes out.

The birds begin to chirp.

A wet breeze hits my face.

I look up into the sun.

I don’t feel so alone anymore.

I feel alive.

I’m happy I waited.

Waited for time to pass.

For time to heal old wounds.

I’m ready to face the day.
