Days of fatigue, nights of sweat
Struggling to move day by day
The parched earth, the bare sky
Lethargy enveloping every being
My heart as black as the sun.
For days, I’ve been feeling dry
Like a riverbed sucked of its life
My head forced down by the dizziness
Of looking up into a merciless sky
Even my tears seemed reluctant to flow
So that sorrow ended up choking me inside.
But tonight, a cool breeze knocked at my window
Surprising me, stirring me from my numbness
I watched as it brushed the trees, and
Playfully tugged the corners of my mouth
I let the tears flow freely, as I smiled to see
How God made it rain for me.
