Blue Skies and Rain

by Sarah Layer, 2020

If life was all blue skies
And there was no rain
Then there’d be no growth
And there’d be no change


No colorful flowers
No green grass
All those colors would never last


Everything would die and wither away
The life-living green would surely turn to grey


So remember in life when storm clouds come
It only means change, a colorful sum
So endure the rain clouds for a time
Because soon the sun will be shining with everything fine


Don’t ever forget
No matter how long you live, this simple phrase-
It takes the rain and clouds
To make better days
