Be Like Water, My Friend - Hypnotic Induction

'Be like water, my friend, be like water,
Don’t be rigid; just go with a flow...'
'Be like water' - you asked me. 'Don't hold to me.
I am leaving, so please let me go.'

'Water is shapeless, my friend, water is flowing
Water is moving; and it cannot die...
It may freeze sometimes, when it gets too cold,
But you know, the spring will arrive.'

***
I’m becoming shapeless, I’m becoming fluid,
I am listening to what you say...
I got frozen, my friend, by your sudden coldness
But I’m finding through cracks my new way.

***
Now I am floating, again. I am glowing.
I’m reflecting the sun and the sky...
And sometimes the clouds. And the wind is blowing...

I’m already far away...Just stopped to wave 'Good Bye! '

a different side to water....i liked it...do read my poem Emotions...it's about water too....a bit...just a different side of the same coin I guess yours is more readable and more often true and much more important to learn! ! LuV VidZ
The piece has a nice progression. It moves well.
I enjoyed this poem with its sustained metaphor and pleasing rhymes. Good write
