Personal (Hope)

I’m caught in a downpour  

and my face rains tears  

despite an umbrella keeping

me from getting drenched.  

All I can do is wait until

the sky lifts up and the  

storms cease so I can again

be shaded by the sun.

But for now, I will feel the  

full effects of sadness

where rain clouds hang

in the balance with hope.  

If I wait long enough,

the clouds will part and

in their place a rainbow

will appear blanketing us.
