“We Are Water” by Margaret Polizzotto

Water is the essence of life.
It is what makes up our entire being and existence.
It flows through our veins,
And is the heartbeat of mother nature.
It is in the earliest records of ancient times,
And in the latest of modern scripture.
It can be the cause of life, or death.
Some have memories of being content and joyful with water,
While some have terrible memories of water,
Memories that have been pushed back,
Into the farthest corners of their subconscious.
The creator himself, made our world,
And He filled it with more water than his own image.
Water is life.
Water is us.
