Truth will come with the rain | #apoemaday14

January 14, 2020

FREE WRITING

2
Elusive droplets of shimmering transparency
fall only rarely on this drought-ridden world.

Now our land is cracked like shattered glass;
fractured like dried mud where a river once flowed.

The sky is clear but clouded with lies;
nothing will relieve the burning heat.

For this is a place where lies are embraced—
chasms tear apart the earth, separating us all. 

I hope that someday the silver water will fall once again,
forming rivers in the worn dry canyons. 

I hope that someday the truth will come back;
for rain does not choose where it falls. 

Elusive droplets of shimmering transparency
fall only rarely on this drought-ridden world.

But drought does not last forever—
fires always burn themselves away.

Truth will return to our world once more,
and with it will come the rain. 
 
Finished at 10:30 PM EST, 1/14/20.
