I am a snowflake. I am not the sky. I am not the ground. I am frozen water Carved out of a cloud. I am tender and fragile. I am translucent and strong. I am falling piece of time past And a future life source for all. As a single snowflake, My presence still has worth, But when those like me gather together, A wonderland is earth. The future for me is simple. Again, I’ll be a drop of water. Maybe I’ll be raging with the river Or part of a rolling sea, Or possibly part of a cloud again But I will always be me. Maybe I will help the beautiful to grow, For this is my favorite task! To see a life find hope in my gift And all of their worries cast. I am not just one thing. I've known life in all of its stages. I’ve seen the world and felt its pain And written novels worth of pages. To discount my validity is folly Because I am part of you. You can despise my existence or wish me away, But I will continue to move. I am a snowflake.
