"'Never will I leave you,

'Never will I forsake you.
So say with confidence,
'The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?'"
-Hebrews 13:5-6

"Without hard work, only weeds will grow."
-Gordon B. Hinckley

Clouds gather and a water drop
Descends into a hidden cataract.
There it falls, greeting the icy waters,
And down, down, down, the it journeys further.

Sharp rocks poke out of the rushing stream.
Clear like glass, it ventures further through the trees.
The stream thins out and slows to a trickle.
Far, far, far the little stream travels.

Another river roars and rushes past.
The little stream is dragged in at last.
The helpless drop finally escapes,
Down, down, down a blue cascade.

Pitter-pat the water falls,
Down against the muddy walls,
To an expanse of endless waters.
Far, far, far the lake goes on.

The author's comments:
This is something I did for school and my parents suggested I submit it to a contest and I chose Teenink, though it's not necessarily a contest I've always wanted to submit something to here but I never thought of anything to do. This is one of my first poetry works and I'm actually really enjoying it. :)
