The rain wanted to fight me.
Pouring down to become pines and needles
splashing upwards,
dropping down with mock-unison
into the now flooded sidewalk.
 
Daring me to tread through, knowing that I had to.
And so I did.
 
It was war.
And I came through on the other side,
wetter and dirtier than before.
Knowing that I had won
