She is Water- Rupi Kaur

she is water

 

soft enough

to offer life,

tough enough

to drown it away

 


Here’s a poem that I’m obsessed with by a poet I’ve been obsessed with! Love Rupi Kaur’s simple yet cutting language. She really gets straight to the core of human nature. The juxtaposition of soft and tough is phenomenal in this poem. Who says being soft/kind/warm doesn’t mean you’re not also tough/strong/resilient? 😉
