Burning Rain




Rain
Acid rain
Pours down on me
Burning me

I scream
But my screams are lost
Amidst a million others

Fire on sensitive skin
I can feel my flesh burn
Flames erupting
On my arms and face

I can smell the fire
Emanating from me

My crime?
I lived
In a land of eternal misery,
Never-ending greed,
Ever-lasting lies

I lived
When a time
Of honest living
Was not possible

I lived
And the rain
Burned me
As punishment
For my virtues.
