Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. Leonard Cohen

We are born of water, and to water we return
We may shed tails and grow feet but we remember our beginnings
Once we forget our origin, we will fail to survive

This is lovely. As a kid I loved water when I was 4 and we went to visit the ocean for the first time I ran into the water fearlessly and immediately got sucked down by the undercurrent I nearly drowned but I got back in later after I recovered. In fact I have been close to drowning 5 times and I am still fatally drawn to the water, not unlike a moth I guess lol
