I'd rather be a creek carving its way beneath the rocks
than a pond.
I'd rather be a wildflower that grows in unexpected corners
than a lily.
I'd rather be a shaft of sunlight that reaches the darkest spaces
than a shadow.
I'd rather cascade majestically like a spring tide
than a wave.
I'd rather trace the murky depths of an ocean
than skim through it
and call it a life.
