Picture taken by my cousin Zon Khaute

A drop,
a single touch,
still brings out the child in her,
that use to run out
as the first drop of rain hit the earth.
She used to dance in joy as it pours down,
that child got lost as years pass by,
buried deep down in this busy world;
standing in line to compete with the rest,
where only one can win the race.
No joy, no happiness;
she forgot it all,
no more laughter as before
till one day she freed her burdens
dancing in the rain like she once did,
looking forward to a content life
where the race no longer mattered;
everyone was first in their own ways,
a topper in their own success,
each a different path,
each a different story,
with a purpose to win through life.

  1. This is so inspiring, Daphny. I loved the change in direction with these lines:

    “till one day she freed her burdens
    dancing in the rain like she once did…”

    It was at this point hope shown through again like the most brilliant god-beam breaking through a storm cloud. I’m glad you’re dancing in the rain again. Don’t ever stop. πŸ™‚

  3. I love the twists in this poem, from happiness to sadness to happiness. Glad the persona found the reasons to once be happy. I often tell people that positivity is the backbone of good health. Such a gorgeous poem, dear Daph 🌺❀🌺❀🌺

      1. You’re right, they truly do. It is called empathetic writing, taking the format of messages from lyric poems though not one. Thank you again, my dearest friend. ❀❀πŸ₯°πŸ€—
