Rainy Day

By Ava M.

I am thirteen

And my friends

Still dance and laugh with me

In the rain


I still sing and play

In the rain


Others remain indoors

Watching me

Judging me



I try to grab the water

As it falls

And the sky turns grey

In the rain


As they see me

Singing in the rain

Being outside

For no gain

Of mine


I’m out here because I can be

I can finally feel free

In the rain


I may get wet

Or slip and fall

But what’s the point of staying inside

When the outdoors call
