Her power is superior
Her treatment is inferior
How can we make it clearer
That her being is our bearer
Pollution, erosion, depletion...
It's a cycle of repetition
How she longs to peacefully meander
And be kind to those counting on her
Justice is her constant banner
Upstream, downstream, no favoritism
Adventure is her formula
"What a savage and a ravage!"
is the old adage...
All the while, she wants us to come of age
To see that her mission is our well-being
Her message is that while living
We ought not to reach a standstill
But to progress to our destiny
With all the ups and downs
The steadiness and the turbulence
The clarity and turbidity
We shouldn't be unwilling
For it is in giving that we receive
We should never be deceived
That our destination isn't bound to come
Thus when we shall reach the gates
Along with all our mates
We shall savor the calm of the ocean
Which in that case, will be heaven!
