The life force behind us all

yet it terrifies me so

it makes up most of planet earth

it helps our green grass grow.

So calm and serene

I have seen it be

but also destructive

it is truly deadly.

One drop could be torture

or it could save a life

a quick dip can cool you

or a drench can cause you strife.

This double edged droplet

seems to get around

and while a drink is beneficial,

I think I’ll stay on the ground.
