When they saw you as a small,
trickling water stream, I saw you as
an ocean filled with promises
of forever.

When they saw you as a deathly
flood causing casualties, I saw you as
a saving oasis in a
faraway desert.

When they saw you as a disastrous,
raging hurricane, I saw you as
a soothing rain on a
summer day.

When they saw you as a half empty
water glass, I saw you as
a glass that was
half full.

When they saw you as a transparent
raindrop, I yearned to see
through you, but
I couldn't.

You could destroy or sustain life, the
power rested in your hands,
you made your choice
to drown me.
