there will be times where you want to
feel the rain fall on you but somehow,
they will stay in the clouds
because your essay is not complete,
the guy’s phone number is not listed first on the call log,
the floor still looks like it belongs to the junkyard,
your feet is merely halfway from the finish line,
the remote will stay an inch far away from you,
and the dust still covers every skin of the fireplace in your mind.
I know things are hard right now but you have to fight through and
you must burn those logs in the fireplace because once you burn them,
you’ll feel like an angel in winter break’s heaven where there is nothing to worry about later.
once every must-to-do is checked on your spine, your back won’t hurt anymore and you’ll feel clean like a little kid from a long dirty day of playing
a successful game.
so let the rain fall on you.”
