When It Rains It Pours (a poem)

Is it raining right now?

Just a drizzle or a downpour?

I ask you

It’s pouring too hard

been goin’ on for a while

you say

Flash floods are raging

feel like I’m drowning

you shout in the storm

Hold on my friend

just float on the water

I whisper to you

You’ll be carried along

wherever you’re going

you hear me say

And you sail quietly

trusting the word

until the sun comes out.
