When You See Water – Alice Walker 

When you see water in a stream 

you say: oh, this is stream 

water; 

When you see water in the river 

you say: oh, this is water 

of the river; 

When you see ocean 

water 

you say: This is the ocean’s 

water! 

But actually water is always 

only itself 

and does not belong 

to any of these containers 

though it creates them. 

And so it is with you.
