The Soft And The Hard - Poem by Han Min Ohn

Once there was a tall rock in a stream
It was so large that indomitable it seemed
It stood firm against the fiercest tempest
It did not yield to the occasional knocks and bumps

Water in the stream however did not stop
On meeting the hard unmovable solid rock
It flowed around the free space beside
To continue its journey of flight

In flowing around, the water rubbed off
Very tiny part of the rock’s basal stock
With passing of time the rock tumbled down
Being eroded by the most fluid of forms.

So in life never forget that the rule
‘The soft overcome the hard’ is really true
Be soft, gentle and flexible over things
That are in the hard, rough and bigoted rings
