IF I AM WATER

If I am water
My concern is not, about you
My concern is not, about me
I have no apprehensions or fears, I just exist
If I am water…
Do I need you to acknowledge my existence?
Do I need to understand why I am here?
If I am water…
Does the value you place on me,
affect me or you?
If I am water…
Do I contemplate my place in the universe?
or do I just exist?
And because I exist
Do I not nurture life?
If I am water…
Is it me
that needs YOUR appreciation and understanding?
If I am water…
If you never acknowledge me…
will I cease to exist
Even in the acid rain, I exist

And If I am water…
I am not the form or the action
I am not your projection…
I am not destruction or tranquility

I am not the flood
I am not the drought
I am not ice or vapor
When I am more or I am less…
I am still just water
If I am motionless or I am fierce…I AM
I CANNOT BE DESTROYED
If I am not in the ocean
I am in the air
If I am water…
I will always be somewhere

I am not the flood
I am not the drought
I am not ice or vapor
When I am more or I am less…
I am still just water
If I am motionless or I am fierce…I AM
I CANNOT BE DESTROYED
If I am not in the ocean
I am in the air
If I am water…
I will always be somewhere’
