Power

How dare we
  how do we dare to slight
Anyone, or anything
  watch the power of the water
As it flows, bounds
  down the rocks pounding them
Into something totally
  different after years and centuries
It is a reminder
  of our smallness, of our finite
Being which only
  sees a spot or wrinkle in time
We have to ask ourselves
  will what I say, do today last
Longer than this
  longer than this one display
Is it better to show
  the power of our kindness and
Compassion because
  this will endure
