Impact of water in a water-surface

Clear, innocent and calm

The spring of life,

A gentle healer

It wanted nothing in return

Soft, eternal and somehow strong

Like a good mother

It fed us with its wealth

But then it felt a sudden pain

An acid eating it from the inside

Dark, harmful spots appeared

And caused incurable damage

Like a tumor spread all over its delicate body

Patience finished

Enraged element opened its long arms

Once they were softly hugging its children

Now they cover them forcefully

They smother them

The water shows its force

To the ungrateful human beings
