Water

Sometimes pride fills my stomach and makes my head wary of a fall

My cure is thinking of my insignificance

And so I go to the beach and stare at the open sea.

Water has this weird way of letting us know

We don’t matter

Try it

Dip your finger in a cup of water

Take it out and notice how dispensable you are

Water knows more than we do

What we need

And what we don’t need.
