Pitter-patter of the raindrops -
as I listen to each one go plop
into the bucket which collects
each drop as to not neglect
the need for water in our lives
as so many have not and cannot even cry.
Proud people who drink from the ground
are everywhere in this world to be found.
They hold themselves high
and continue to try
to better themselves
despite outright lies
that others' tell of them
because of their acts
their dress, their beliefs,
their color, their supposed lack of tact.
They are loveable people
who treasure the planet.
And yet we act as if we are better.....
not yet; not ever.
