But a Puddle

But a Puddle

A Poem by Rose Diamond
"

This is a little speech/poem I wrote for my Religion class based off of "Our Deepest Fear". I just want to give a huge shout out to my friends Grace and Olivia, who helped with the title and design!

"
You aren't afraid of being worthless
You're afraid of being worth it
You're not scared of the bad inside of you
You're scared of you
You don't think you deserve to be
smart, talented, beautiful, or gifted
but you know what?
You don't know you. 
When you look in the mirror,
you don't see yourself the way I see you,
how your peers see you,
and how God sees you. 
You see a drinking fountain while I see a waterfall,
and holding back all of that water is just gonna leave people thirsty. 
Keeping back that river within you isn't going to make the other fountains overflow,
they'll do that when they're ready. 
We all will.
For we were born to be oceans, 
glorious and powerful. 
But we are not split into rivers and oceans, 
streams and ravines, 
droplets and ripples. 
We are all part of the same water cycle, 
we are all meant to be big. 
And as we grow from fountains to waterfalls, 
we allow others to grow and change with us.
We let others know that they are not a grain of salt in our seas, 
but a whole sea themselves.
Oceans did not start off as oceans, 
they began as but a puddle.

Author's Note

Usually I don't lie putting Religion into my pieces (unless the piece is about that topic), so I apologize if anyone takes offense to that. Also, I mentioned my friends who are working on an image for this, so if they let me, I'll add that in.

Anyways, all comments and feedback are welcome! :)

As beautiful as the oceans are I'm just a fish in the sea-Wonderful to have such a good imagination to dream of being as big as the Atlantic and cross the ocean deep I love to dream of being a small fish and have lots of friends in Schools as we swim the ocean deep. Wonderful poem good Imagination working here.
