I’d rather be the water from the ocean.

I’d rather be the water from the ocean.

I will quench your thirst when you are thirsty; I will take the shape of the vessel into which I’m poured; I’ll let you swim through me; I’ll let you relax and entertain yourself on my shoulders; I’ll let you throw me away; I’ll let you dump rubbish into me; I’ll let you waste me and misuse my resources…

However…

Don’t try to erase my existence! I will never let you do that! If you ever try to do so, I will engulf your intentions with my mighty waters; I will destroy your shelter and everything else you have; I will drain you out of all your wealth…

And, then, when you come to me to beg for mercy, my shattered heart will wrap around you to protect you from myself — to protect you from the invincible monster that I’ve become!

And, then, my shattered heart will break my wrath apart; my shattered heart will once again give back to you what was always yours — my shattered heart will give back to you the last memory of mine…

And, then, I will rest peacefully, eternally at the bottom of the ocean…
