Thoughts and Quotes

Walking in the Rain

Walking in the Rain

There are days when I want to break down

When being strong is not an option found

When tears want to flow and sobs like to be heard

When I want to curl up inside a blanket and shut out the cruel world


But something stops me from breaking free

From showing to the world how fragile I can be

From crying out loud, lest someone might hear me


On days like these, I take out my walking shoes

Plug in some music and set out into the streets

The sound of the music inside my head

Drowns the last few barriers dead


The breeze whistles past my tangled hair

The road welcomes my thoughts without a stare

The honking horns shout above my sobs

No one can hear me amidst this chaos


The drizzling rain falls on my cheeks

Mixing with the tears which had refused to break free

Anyone who catches the sparkle on my face

Would think of it as a rain drop resting, in its place


Such is the beauty of the world around me

It gives me the space that I need to be me

When the inner world is screaming to come out

I just don my walking shoes and get lost in the crowd


(Drawing of Walking in the Rain from Toyna)
