Dance In The Rain

9:00 AM



Dance In The Rain

We have to work hard, we have to work smart
We need to invest our money and save it, we just need to start
We've got to deal with heartbreaks, we have to feel some pain
When all we really need to do is dance in the rain.

I know growing old is inevitable, but do we really need to grow up?
What’s wrong with being a child inside, it’s not like we'll get stuck.
We just have to hold on to that innocence and sense of wonder
and not be afraid to fail,
We must not let go of that magic we get when we dance in the rain.

We just need to see the world in the purest, most uncomplicated way
Stop the unnecessary war, end this greedy, selfish play
All these innocent lives taken, homes broken and the world destroyed
What is there really to gain?
Stop this world destruction now, come let’s just dance in the rain.

If we only learn to love like a child; no buts no ifs,
Only honesty, kindness and truth leave our lips
Then we can all live in prosperity and harmony, no one will complain
Maybe we can all run under the sun and dance in the rain.

When was the last time you danced in the rain?

  1. Lovely! Both the words and the overall sentiment. It's too easy for us to get distracted and miss the joy that's in the journey.

  2. Beautiful post, Lux! We can learn a lot from children; animals, too! They don't worry about tomorrow, they don't complain, they just enjoy the moment! As for myself, I have always loved the rain! :) Besides, we can only see a rainbow after the rain. :)

  3. Oh Wow! I love this.. I lllllloooooovvvee it aswear.. Yu know yeah Bubba... This line got me the most.. You know the one where you went;

    "I know growing old is inevitable, but do we really need to grow up?"

    I literally ask my 23 years 7 months 27 days old confused self that kweshion daily.. Do we really need to grow up?! Like really Really?! When i was a child.. We used to hope for rain.. Not so we could cuddle up and drink hot tea.. But so we could go under the rain and have lotsa fun.. thennn get a cold days later and be shouted on by papa ( It didnt matter afterwarll, we had the fun under the rain when we could).. Today aYam 23 and old.. And i pray for the rains so i can cuddle up and drink tea.. I run from the rain in search of shelter.. and sitting down here with my legs crossed on this jangolova cahir **Winks.. i ask ME where the child in me went.. Where the fun part of the world went.. How it all passed and i didnt pay attention to its passing.. It is weird Lux.. It is weird cause I grew up even without knowing...

    You know ehn Bubba.. I think its the same thing that happened in me subconsciousl, that also happened in teh world baby mi... As I grew.. So did the world... so did hate.. So did envy.. So did wickedness.. Its sad Lux.. very sad...

    Ooooossshheeey Turn uP!.. This is my most favorite post on here thus far.. I am in love of the wisdom spewed on it.... Cheers Bubba.. More inspiration to your amazing mind is my wish for you.. :) xx and the crowd goes Ammmmmeeeeen.

  4. Hi there.. it's my first time here.. I truly love this post..
    I always wish to be a kid again.. all that innocence, all those moments when you think nothing but to have fun...if we can only turn back time.
    i can hardly remember the last time I dance or play in the rain... maybe I have to bring the kid out of me and play in the rain for an hour or two ... must be very fun..
    thanks for sharing

  5. Absolutely lovely.
    My inner child is frequently the healthiest part of me. And almost always the happiest part of me.
    And I have danced in the rain often. And hope to continue to do so.

  7. We really need to take time and enjoy the simple things of life, laugh/dance like no one is watching. Beautiful and thoutful piece Lux. How you been dear?

  8. Great thoughts and perspective. Growing old is inevitable, so one must strive to live life, follow dreams and pursue happiness at all times. But more importantly, retain the magic of childhood memories.

  9. Hi, dear Lux! Dancing in the rain is cathartic. The act of dancing changes your physiology. When you change your physiology your mental state follows the lead. I was taught that you can't stay angry, bitter, sad or depressed if you smile, sing and dance. It really works. Try it. I made a commitment to myself many years ago that I would stay forever young. I have kept my word. I am not willing to let old age take me over. I do whatever it takes to fight the aging process. I will never give up and I will never give in. I keep a youthful spirit. I am curious. I am thankful for life's simple pleasures. I love abundantly and unconditionally. I forgive.

    Thank you, dear friend Lux!

  10. We really did have opportunity to dance in the rain in Texas this year. Much more rain than usual, and most of the time it was a steady downpour. I have to admit, I didn't take the opportunity to walk in it.

  17. It's been a long time since I danced in the rain. Not because I wouldn't dance in the rain, but you need rain to dance in. We are in a severe drought here. I'll be glad to dance in the rain when it rains.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  18. Grow up? Nonsense! I'll always dance in the rain. I'll even dance in the rain with my nephews. ;)

  19. What a wonderful poem! Living in southern California I sure wish there was some rain to dance in! And I think the last time I danced in the rain was the last time it DID rain! The birds were out there dancing in it, too!

    ReplyDelete
  20. My family often dances in the rain. It is a glorious sight. I danced the last time it rained.

    ReplyDelete
  21. i love that question - when's the last time we danced in the rain? for me, it was probably way back in my teens ... too long ago! :D

  54. Wonderful poem! It is only with childlike wonder and faith that we can enter into the kingdom of Heaven, and only with childlike joy that we can dance in the rain. Thank you for the beautiful post and for your lovely comment on Saved by Grace! God bless,

  55. We have just traded our innocence for greed and selfish desires
    When was the last time i danced in the rain? I can;t remember maybe many years ago
    Why can't i do it now again and again? Growing up is just a trap!

  59. Very sweet thoughts. And Christ encouraged us along these lines as well :) >> "Then he said, "I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven." (Matthew 18:3, NLT) Something to be learned from watching the beauty found in children!

  60. These words are so encouraging and definitely so true. Seeing the world in it's truest form is something more people should definitely do.

  61. Jesus reminded us to come to Him as little children. It is good to have a child's heart - quick to believe God and quick to obey. I love the rain, and why not dance in it. Thanks for sharing with us here at Tell me a Story. http://letmetelluastory.blogspot.com/

  62. Hello my dear Lux! <3 You're so so right. We are just so so preoccupied with our material needs that we forget the little joys in life!! I miss being a kid :( I hate growing up...gosh!! It's indeed a trap! :(

  82. It's so important to read poems, articles, essays from real people - people who love and help others and dance in the rain - we need it so much ...in this world of ours - we need to remember that there is more good in the world than the few who terrorize. Love love your post.

  83. Hi Lux, you write so beautifully. What a touching post. Sad but true, I have never danced in the rain after living for 44 years and I don't think I will ever do it.
