Have you ever observed a flowing river?
If you did – just as I do right now –
Have you considered the existence of a couple of droplets
That are out of place,
That just don’t belong there?
Do you think that I could be one of those droplets?
I feel like I don’t belong here or anywhere I know…
Is there another place for me to go? Anywhere?
A place among a couple other droplets
Who would be like themselves and stay that way?
Even if we are only a couple of droplets – very few –
Flowing across and in between the preset direction
We can survive out there – together – and live and love.
Because we are more than one.
Because we are a couple.
Inspired by „Poetry 101 Rehab“

I indeed wrote this poem yesterday at night. Today during school I enjoyed myself with an experiment (another poem) on the same topic. It’s called „OF DAYS“
To be honest… I prefer „A couple of droplets“ – it means much more to me.
