If I were a rain
I would have washed away the stains of brutality
From your walls and
Filled the empty minarets with water pleasant.If I were a rain
I would have watered your thirsting hands for peace
And hid the moist eyelids in my veil
Till long after the spiraling smoke rose to my chambers.

If I were a rain
I would have swelled the waves of your ocean to such heights
That pirates of humanity
Would not have reached this shore lapping along the tranquil sea.

If I were a rain
I would have poured to fill your broken souls
With hope and life
And soothed the foreheads with an eternal balm of love.

A quiet storm is brewing inside me
It’s rising and gathering cloud
I can feel lightnings of emotions rip through me
Maybe soon I will be rain.
