Soaked in Rain (Originally Untitled) – Written Wednesday 27th April 2011 (Aged 36)

Soaked in Rain

i am tired –
of it going wrong
and experiences –
cannot change
like a memory of a day –
soaked in rain
i guess all we can do –
is hope the next day
will be much better
better than the last
that there will be a home –
for our hearts
promises are hollow
and it is only actions
that lay foundations
but given the chance
i will make this situation
better than our previous
wipe away thoughts –
of failure and hurt
i know we care –
try and make it work
i know we are not –
so young anymore
but never lose sight
of our possible future
