Lost in the Rain

I come from a place filled with clouds and rain,

I like the sound of wind when it flows through the air,

I miss being able to smile when I am in good care,

I long for love, friendship and more making my heart hurt even more.

My safe haven is getting lost in my books and not caring anymore,

I feel most alive when I can feel the rain burning

through my skin giving me life again.

If I could go anywhere, it would be New Zealand feeling the green of the grass,

While running through the fields away from my thoughts and regrets.

My parents say I am unique and loved but,

What I really am is broken and feeling lost like a person without a lifeboat.

I dream of a field of roses and being able to hide from my thoughts,

In the world of trees and rain feeling the fresh,

breeze on the ground against my brain.

I am terrified of being lost and never finding a way out,

And always being stuck under dark clouds and rain.

This poem was written by our daughter. She prefaced sharing it with me by saying "Before I share this I want you to know I am okay" and I believe that she is. I think it is a brave reflection of what she and some of her peers are feeling as they prepare to head into our world.

If you are the parent of a teen, I want to encourage you to check in on them. Hold them close and let them know that they are deeply loved.

Ya'll have a beautiful day!

All My Love,
