I

I seek only the acceptance of those brave enough to question my resilience,

The love of those willing to reciprocate unquestionably,

And the respect of all who truly know me,

I do not dare assume one single iota, and I believe only what I can hold, hug and feel,

Perhaps this is why on days I find myself lonelier that I could have ever feared,

Compromise may bring company, but it breaks my heart too readily

Rain

Incessant

Unwelcome

Save for

The flowers,

Delivered from the angry grey

Dousing

Soaking

Ruining

Invigorating,

It is not the rain that soaks your soul

It is your failure to accept its gift

Breathe in

Get wet

And live
