"don't cry because its over, smile because it happened"

Don't be an image of a lake,
still and silent.
An impression of beauty, yes...
But beneath the surface is for what I strive.
Harboring lives, for millions of creatures....
Supplying water for those who need it's strength
that which is worthy of looking like a lake is not worthy at all,
rather that which is like a lake,
the ability to support precious life,
now that,
leaves a mark.

The author's comments:
It's not about how you look, or how cool you appear, or anything about yourself for that matter that makes an impression, rather supporting others in their time of need, when they need the strength you harbor, that is what's important in life.
