What a beautiful analogy of freedom!
Have you ever watched the rain?
I mean, really given your heart and soul to it?
Have you looked into the deluge
Allowed your heartbeat to slow and marvelled;
Stood transfixed at billions of reflected worlds?
Have you admired the infinitesimal differences,
A myriad variations of the Earth we know?
The uniqueness of individual droplets
All holding a little, tiny bit of you and I;
Of what may and may not!
The majesty of the rain:
Spherical clips of a time in free fall
Before simply washing away.
I wish I was a raindrop: unique, untarnished, free.
