A Poet's Place

The Gazeebo: Long Time, New Post

Hello all!

I know – a LONG time since I last posted, but I’ve been kind of busy doing the whole job search lately, but it’s all good because I’ve finally scored a job!! 🙂 I’m a cashier / barista at this family owned coffee shop at my college so it’s a great thing – location, family owned, good pay, good hours, great atmosphere, a nice customer base.. I mean really, what else could someone ask for when they’re trying to work their way through college?

Anyway, it was my second day and I learned how to make a coffee shake (for those Starbuck’s fans, it’s basically a frappuccino) so that was pretty fun lol.

Otherwise, life is just pluggin along.. gonna be learning piano this semester and “training my ears” with certain tempos, rhythms, etc. of music.  Not quite sure what else to say about that…

So, that’s about all.. for the poem today, I am going to switch things up a bit just because I’ve been a wee bit obsessed with this song (and also because I’ve had the worst writer’s block lately and haven’t been able to get any ideas or anything in my head to even attempt to write something down lol).  It’s Sara Bareilles’s song called “Let the Rain.”  [Lyrics for this acquired here.]

“Let The Rain”

I wish I were pretty
I wish I were brave
If I owned this city
Then I’d make it behave

And if I were fearless
Then I’d speak my truth
And the world would hear this
That’s what I wish I’d do, yeah

If my hands could hold them you’d see
I’d take all these secrets in me
And I’d move and mold them to be
Something I’d set free

I want to darken in the skies
Open the floodgates up
I want to change my mind
I want to be enough
I want the water in my eyes
I want to cry until the end of time

I want to let the rain come down
Make a brand new ground
Let the rain come down
Let the rain come down
Make a brand new ground
Let the rain come down tonight

I hold on to worry so tight
It’s safe in here right next to my heart
Who now shouts at the top of her voice
Let me go, let me out, this is not my choice

And I always felt it before
That the world was filled with much more
Than the drowning soul I’ve learned to be
I just need the rain to remind me

I want to darken in the skies
Open the floodgates up
I want to change my mind
I want to be enough
I want the water in my eyes
I want to cry until the end of time

I want to let the rain come down
Make a brand new ground
Let the rain come down
Let the rain come down
Make a brand new ground
Let the rain come down

I want to let the rain come down
Make a brand new ground
Let the rain come down
Let the rain come down
Make a brand new ground
Let the rain come down

I want to let the rain come down
Make a brand new ground
Let the rain come down
Let the rain come down
Make a brand new ground
Let the rain come down tonight
