Water


Water water water
Water runs away

Taking with it all within
Clean water remains

Fresh and pure
Ready to be consumed

Memories are gone
Past hurts washed clean

The sole is purified
The heart clean

Sins forgiven
Without it death is inevitable

Life and water are coupled
Forever cleansing our hearts and minds

Allowing fresh starts and continued life
One only has to drink from the river

Liquid gold

Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
