to you i am only rain

to you i am only rain
a bucketfull of water
escaping from the clouds
do you really think so little of me

maybe i am a falling fountain
but you cannot climb a ladder
a hill of stairs
to a more beautiful level of thought

i don't understand
why i am so simply termed to you
or why you cannot define me
beyond my looks

maybe you are reluctant
to look within my essence
defining me by a limited definition
and a name called rain

there is so much more to me
i live, breathe and dance through the sky
in different temperaments
i am alive , i have a past and a future

droplets of rain are all you see
a face with a laugh
a sad outer shell

but you know nothing of me
so define me how you wish

Author's Note
i wanted to write about the rain but underneath this is more of a meaning .. i guess about whats below the surface .. we sometimes just see the surface without looking any deeper, i guess thats what i mean
