“And the rains comes down” by Mykell Hatcher-McLarin 4/29/14
And the rain didn’t come down to make us fall. And the rain didn’t come down to make us dreary. And the rain didn’t come down to spite the day. The rain came down to wash away the days of doubt. The rain came down to remind us that clouds are as temporary as a forecast. 90% chance of rain today. 0% tomorrow. 70% the next day. 0% tomorrow. Let’s stand in today and let tomorrow come when it does. The rain came down to fall on car windows, windshield wipers clear the mind of non-clarity. We can see the path outside before us now, for a moment. But from inside, we could always see ourselves. The rain never stopped us if we paid attention. The rain came down to cleanse our bodies of superficial layers of ego and pride and high class hatred. These clothes are wet from rainfall so strip down to our core essence and find truth. The rain came down and I heard someone say, “I hate the rain.” I turned to them and said, “Yet the rain loves us enough to fall to Earth and meet us halfway between Hope and Healing.” They didn’t understand. But rain falls anyway. And the rain comes down.
