Things seemed like they were the same. The world seemed as bright as it always was, with the leaves as brown as they were in the autumn, and the kids sounded as joyful as they always were. I could see the trees in the distance, at the opposite side of the park, and I can even see the gray skies in the distance which meant that it was raining somewhere far away.

The thunder boomed, and it sounded the same as it got closer and closer. But when the rain began to pelt on me, the world started to look different with every drop. My vision was clouded by splashes, and it dissolved into a blur of colors.

I see absolutely everything

I observed my creator as he admired me

I witnessed him aging and fading

I watched burly men handle me

I looked as they set me on a huge white wall

For all to see, and with all in my view

Then a man came and scrutinized me

I peered back

I oversaw money exchanging hands

Then they put me in brown paper

and I saw no more
