Don't Break the Rain

Don't Break the Rain

A Poem by Cassie Weller

My dedication to all the amazing people in this world that see things just a little differently.

Slowly, quickly, dodging time,
Fast as currents- falling brine.
Tiptoe, race, and just as quick-
Careful foothold, not to slip.
I see a universe in every drop
A galaxy falls with every plop.
Others see rain and don’t see me;
I see the worlds that they don’t see.
Some call me strange, a mental case,
Can’t understand my “slower” pace.
I may think different than the mass
(Each gentle drip is shattered glass.)
I dance and mourn while they walk through
Just getting where they needed to.
I don’t mind, I’m not like them;
My heart beats same, I live in skin,
but thoughts, unique and so I smile
Because they’re just not worth my while.
I’m slow, “disabled”- they don’t know
My soul flies higher than they go!
They see me splashing, think it’s sweet,
But all I hear is ocean-street.
Playing on, my own life’s game.
Careful now- don’t break the rain.
