Dual nature

Sitting at the beach, mesmerized by the sea
I marvel at the thought that the sea that’s bringing us peace at the moment, also has the potential to bring havoc on us.

The same wind that’s slowly caressing my skin, playing with my hair, can just as easily engulf me .

The rain without which a farm couldn’t flourish, can also leave it in ruins.

Just like them, us humans should possess the ability to turn from a breeze to a hurricane, from a drizzle to a storm.

Be kind, be calm, be patient… But also…

Have some fire. Be unstoppable. Be a force of nature. Be better than anyone here and don’t give a damn what anyone thinks.
