Be water. Flow around the challenge in your path. Wear a trail for others to follow, Or take the path of least resistance. Be water. Rise above everything sometimes. See the world from a higher perspective. Rain down and bring life, Or wash things clean to start again. Be water. Persist, despite everything. Wear the mountain down into sand With gentle, lapping waves. Be water. Be still sometimes. Reflect. Become deep. Be water.
