"A Rain of Tears"

Lightning flashed and illuminated the sky.
Thunder crackled, letting out a cry.
Rain soon drizzled with no end in sight,
Playing a rhythm that carried on throughout the night.

The Earth cries in the form of rain,
A rain of tears that brings forth pain.
We realize that the Earth also cares.
We can feel the agony as we stare.

It understands how we feel;
The tears washing through our layer of steel.
The water cleanses our committed sins;
The rain reminding us that we cannot always win.

The sun will always shine another day,
Just as there will always be new ways.
One should look towards that bright tomorrow,
A day that will be lived with less sorrow.
