Remembering pulling on my coral and daisy rain boots Pulling on my rain coat Walking outside, rain dripping out of the clouds Puddles splashing as I walk through them The reflection of the tree’s in the pond The birds flying low, staying under cover
A big puddle is in the middle of the sidewalk I jump in it. Drops of water fly everywhere. A grin makes its way to my face “Watch it!” And melts back off.
I continue to trudge to the bus stop. Standing there alone amid all the people. My bright colors stand out in all the dark. I can feel the eyes burning into me, but I refuse to give in. The bus comes, we get on and we go
I sit in the same seat Alone I unzip my bag, fish out my phone and earbuds Preparing for another day of loneliness, That the brightest color of boots will never change.
