I stood put in the rain for a little while.
Just feeling the cool droplets land,
runing down my skin,
their shimmering bodies falling
through the fading light… and
I became suddenly so
So happy to be alive.
So happy I made it out.
So happy to have good friends in my life.
And so grateful.
I am grateful for all the things the universe has given me.
Big and small.
From the house over my head
To my fingers so that I may write
From my familyand friends
To cat purring gently on my lap
Grateful for the rain on my skin
And for the music playing through my earbuds
I have never left so at peace
And I know I will have bad days
Days where I “mother fucking rant”
And days where I write hate poetry
But I will also have days where I write stories about touches from fingers and hands
Soft as those raindrops on my skin
I will have days where I cry at everything
I will have days where I giggle all day
I will have days where I only want to go back to bed,
Even if only to dream of the future
I know that now I am happy
I love you. I love you all…
