‘Heed the lesson of the rain drop’

English: A drop of water Dansk: En vanddråbe

an elderly squaw once told me,
‘it follows the humble path,
and doesn’t fight gravity…

yet it always gains momentum,
flowing with the greatest strength,
stronger than even the rocks,
yet still, below all other things…

Water leaves it’s mark on canyons,
and we seek it out to survive,
Water has a system it follows,
and it will come & go with the tide,

Heed a lesson from the water,
be humble as you set out again.
Don’t fight the ways of nature,
& don’t fear the mighty mountain…

Find a method that you can follow,
and gain strength from those around.
If you can learn to be like water,
then you shall make your people proud.’

from the creek to the river
from the river to the lake
even the tide in the ocean,
water is wise in it’s way…

Thanks unwritten truth!

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data, ability to repeat discredited memes, and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Also, be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor even implied. Any irrelevancies you can mention will also be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous :)
