Advice, Warning or Request of Water

TANVI BHARGAVA 2008 (LUCKNOW)



I am Water- a 5 letter word
But something bigger, vaster and deeper
Something you can't live without
Something that keeps you alive
The elixir of life
I am a 5 letter word but control the whole world
You find me everywhere
In something as small as a puddle, in something as big as an ocean
In something as high as clouds, in something as low as underground
In something as free as air, in something as complex as you

I am water
I am everywhere but only a little to quench your thirst
I am nowhere if you lose that too little too

Imagine life without me
Not a drop to drink, wash, bath
Not a drop to waste
Not a drop to play with on Holi
Not a drop to swim in
Not a drop to splash on your friend

The world will be a desert, in no time
Drought would be what you will describe your situation as

But..but....don't you care, you just care of your money
Just let me go
Let me go out of those taps, let me drain off, let me run out of myself drop by drop
But money won't quench your thirst, mind you
