The Rain Wants to Die

The rain wants to die
That’s obviously so
It doesn’t struggle to live
Like the dancing snow

The rain wants to die
It doesn’t strike back
Like the angry hail
That hits with loud cracks

The rain wants to die
But why, I don’t know
It doesn’t seem to try
Like the hail and the snow

People don’t like the rain
But maybe that’s why
Because it doesn’t complain
It just wants to die
