Through the mud and muck(Poem#9-High School Years)

When we see the nighttime air
Whipping at our face 
You just can't see, your life away 
As your death is put aside 

The rain falls down fast 
Forming pools and puddles at our feet 
We shiver, as spines tingle 
And shirts stick to flesh 
Soaked to the bone we have become 
We are reduced to wet rats 

Struggling through the thick mud and muck 
Trying to find our way, through the brown water 
Endless hope, does not help
Our souls trying to surface 

Warmth at last we find 
Nice warm night we have 
Here we shall know welcoming 
We are now home
