Kristina Tuminaro, Grade 8
As the rain falls upon the lonely soul,
It cleanses it.
As it falls upon the fallen traveler,
It sends him home.
The rain connects us all
Whether we like it or not
It sheds the tears we are afraid to shed
It tells us the earth is sad
Yet we pollute it with our problems
And our evil
We are destroying the earth
Slowly but surely
And the earth cries,harder and harder
