The Challenger’s Word: Water
Provided by the blogger and dearest friend abroad Adriana
Water has many forms, but the most honest one is shaped of a tear shed because you have to say goodbye to a dear one. Tears, however, doesn’t have to be negatively connotated. A tear of sadness means, that the other person and the time together was worth being sad.
I give you:
As it starts
It will not stop
The river it creates
Caused by the different fates
Flowing down both of your cheeks
Caused by sadness’ depths and happiness’ peaks.
While they fall to the ground, dropping absent of all sound
Memories of days already passed, appear in minds and vanish fast
Walking outside for endless hours, strolling around and make gyms ours
Sitting there with a wine bottle or two, talking about what’s real and true
About Alien life and transhumanism, quantum mechanics and capitalism.
But as the tears reach the floor, and words to say are none more
I turn around, we both cry, it is hard to say a friend goodbye.
But as I sit and write this here, you deserve every tear
Dropped at the end, you are an amazing friend.
Why water drops is due to
everything you stand for in this friendship and I honestly and truthfully thank you!
