A stream is a stream of water,

and within that stream

is the secret of life, in a sense.


A stream, by being water,

is composed of the elements

that compose you,

and by being a stream

it flows toward the ocean

and seeks renewal,

because in the ocean

is the secret of life.


As it is renewed,

it is absorbed,

it is returned

through droplets of rain

to the stream.

You have the cycle.

It is continuous.

The form changes. . .

a stream,

an ocean,

droplets of water,

but it is always that which it was.

It is always water.


Therefore, you are always you.

Your form may change from time to time,

but the cycle does continue,

and you do grow.
