Waterfall of Hope: A Poem
For yourself who never stops giving
a million lives for us to thirst.
while some are prejudiced
about you being assumed to be pretending.
For yourself who never stops channeling enthusiasm
give confidence to a struggle
crossing together various obstacles
while once in a while some of us lose our manners.
We look at each other from different places
you stared down at me
while I was stunned to look up full
then merge into the ripples of time that passes.
This is not who you really are
it's not me who wants to have lots of dreams
it's not us who just keep dreaming
while one by one falling to earth continuously
paused in loneliness and confusion
about a plan that is not guided by a rule
Waterfall you free fall to the ground
Waterfalls you forget when we are the same
Your waterfall can be anything
while it is forgotten that all of us will go to the lowest place
From the spring back to the ground
to choose dry because of the season
or continue to be the life-giving Rain forest.
we will keep this hope together
after in the lowest point with a different level.
after being sad and sad together though someone laughed
after pulling aside in silence after feeling hurt
we have all been through together.
