As Weak As Water
You say I'm as weak as water.
Anyone who is as weak as water
is just as weak
as a matter of life and death.
When you're as weak as water,
You're so weak, you cradle untouched worlds;
Humans would know more about outer space than they would know about you
and all the creatures you host in your depths.
So weak, the waves you make overturn entire cities
and claim them as your own.
Still, entire civilizations form alongside you
wherever you happen to be.
No one tells you where to go.
You are the 1 who decides boundaries.
So weak, you take back what’s yours with rip currents;
No one dares to stand in your path
because you can will yourself through them
and there is no way they can override your force.
So weak, life on Earth literally depends on whether or not you are present.
People sigh for you
and deny you
to those whom need you the most
because you, Water, make up the most of our bodies.
People die for you.
You are a requirement of existence.
Nothing flourishes without your heavenly tears
because when you're as weak as water,
you unite the land and the sky.
When you compare weakness to water,
you make us seem superhuman.
If that's the case, then I would rather be as weak as water.
Water is insurmountable.
Meanwhile, water can kick your ass any time it wants to.
