Be Like Water

Be like water, because it is strong and clear 

Be like water, it rises high to form clouds in the sky 

Be like water, it transforms into brilliant colours when touched by the sun 

Be like water, its presence falls beautifully on mountains, fields and plains 

Be like water, nothing can withstand it, it is stronger than rocks and stone 

Be like water, it travels the world in streams, rivers and sea 

Be like water, as it nourishes plants and animals, you and me 

Be like water, fluid, flexible, resilient and free 

Be like water, ever-changing and yet, still the same.
