Life is like water

Life is like water

Whether it's the ocean or a river

It’s cold dark and blue

It can sometimes be a storm

But it helps us transform

We can never control how we ever feel, and sometimes

That's good. Showing how we truly

Feel, makes us be the best version of us

All the chaos we go through when there's a storm,

With time tidal waves settle


You are adjusting to the things you

Love and hate

Water can be slow and warm, as the sun hits

And it reminds you when you were kids

Making promises to protect one and other

As you grow, your waves get bigger, you realize you are


You admire yourself, you are different.

Some may be scared of you

As you grow, you help others. As you rise, you form

Different shapes

All your waves are mismatched.

As you try to go higher to reach the ones you love

To help, you fall

Water gives hope

All the plants, human, animal grow, and you help.

Like water there are things you can't control

You just have to go with the flow

Life is like water, hectic, free, hard, lose, but you just

Need to find your flow

With the Waves

    That is a brilliantly stated analysis of life that compares it to water. It serves as a moving reminder that, like water, life can be both choppy and transformative. The comparison of waves to human development and our influence on others is very moving. It supports accepting life’s ambiguity and discovering one’s own rhythm, much like water does when it finds its flow. I appreciate you sharing this interesting article. It’s truly beautiful how are beautiful nature connects to us humans in a beautiful way. Mother nature always tries to re create and show us the way and oath to a peaceful life.

    This poem beautifully captures the essence of life by drawing a parallel to water. The metaphor of life as water, with its various forms and states, is both poignant and insightful.
    The mention of storms symbolizes difficult times that we all face, but it’s highlighted that these storms contribute to personal transformation.
    The idea that we cannot control our feelings but expressing them helps us become the best version of ourselves is a powerful message. It emphasizes the importance of authenticity and self-awareness in personal growth.
    A really interesting poem, and very meaningfull.
