Both beautiful and terrifying,
I control a world like no other.
I trust in this precious liquid
Giver of life as my serenity
And my weapon.
I am proud to control
Such a limitless source of

Only I, who finds grace
And power in this substance,
Can control such an incompressible
Source of power.
I find it everywhere,
Hiding in places where
You would never seek.
I can not be stopped.
But never fear,
Though pain and wounds I may inflict,
I am a natural healer.

I am that roaring wave that
Crushes all that try to outrun it.
I am the gentle bearer of nourishment
To all life.
I am a trickle and a tsunmai.
I am the Waterbender.

The author's comments:
This is based on the show and new movie Avater: The Last Airbender. I started writing these poems because in a story I am writing, I have characters that can control the elements and I wrote these poems as a way to help me get the right feel for each different type of element "bending". Also, the term "bender", I do not own. i just could not find another way to describe the power of controlling the elements.
