Which Would You Rather Be?

Like a fire destructive and bold
or like water simple and sold
which would you rather be?

Someone always being so rude
or someone who rarely has an attitude
which would you rather be?

Like a fire licking away
or like water slowly drifting you towards the bay
which would you rather be?

Always tearing down your soul
or always helping you achieve your goal
which would you rather be?

Either way they both might be comfort
they both might be harsh like dirt
they both might show hate or maybe even beauty
so,which would you rather be?

In class we had to write a poem comparing two different things and I decided to complete opposites water vs. fire.
