MY RAIN

Written by: Kolapo Olapoju

Let this rain rain
Let its shower pour
God's supposed blessings


The thunder is drumming
lightening strikes incessantly
the blue sky is downcast
Day has turned to night


Alas,i feel a drop
but that's all i get
For hours,i stare and yearn
For the downpour from above


Unseen hands keep it at bay
Immortal forces deny us of it
My disappointment reaches its peak
I scream out like a pained dog


ALLOW THE RAINS TO ROLL IN!
but to myself do my voice hit
dejectedly,i start to trot away


Alas,i felt two drops
The sky opens and it all falls down


I kneel and savor the rain's cold
The gods must have been listening
