The rain is pouring,
cloud filled sky,
the earth is mourning,
loud she cries,
through thunderous calls,
incessant drops,
don’t ask of her to make it stop.

Inundated with hateful crimes,
copycat killers on the prowl, injustice for the underserved,
hear the voices screaming loud,
and while they are, remember yours, not the one prescribed by others, listen to what moves your heart, listen to that whispering river.
