Drought

She wanted to cry, but no one would let her

Her sighs drew out a single letter

The drought grew long as she held her tears

It hadn’t rained for several years

She wanted to scream but no one could hear her

The thunderous rumble quaked wildly within her

If she could let go of all of her tears

It could rain in the desert the first time in years
