It was Raining

It was Raining

by Elizabeth Challinor

I was busy

Working hard

Burnt out

By dreams

Built on the shaky architecture of other people's plans

Until that day

It was raining

When I missed the bus

Forgot my umbrella

Allowed the rain to rain down

Watched hope

Wink at expectation

Told my landlord I was moving out

And felt the taste of tomorrow

Awaken my senses

Key words: Architecture; Dreams; Moving out; Working hard; Expectation; Burnt out; Hope
