Listen to this drop of water,
Look at it and see the path it takes,
No will, no rebellion, it drops.

It takes with it all that encounters,
Suspended in itself,
It goes just down,
Not pure, but dirty
Dirty like the world it washes.

Don’t be like water,
Don’t meld and lose your shape,
Imbue yourself with everything,
And in the end, evaporate,
Again and again.
