Water or fire?

You can try to extinguish the fire but cannot extinguish the water itself. I choose to be water.

 I choose to hug every stone I hit and say goodbye to it gently right there.

 I choose not to stop, to keep moving on the river. Explore its shores and move forward. 

I choose to reach the sea, know its depth, and eventually become the ocean.

I can wade in the swamp thousands of times, but I will never become it. Because I’m not a swamp. I’m the ocean. Unlimited and immeasurable, inexhaustible, and never drying out.

Hit me over my feet and I will rise in the tsunami. With such strength, I will stand all trials. Because it is my nature, and I will not deny it anymore.
