Poem – water on the stone

You know how
if a bit of water
drops on a stone
every single day,
the stone wears away?

There’s nothing left.

It isn’t something hard,
chipping away.
It is something soft
and it wears away
something hard
drop
by
drop.

Good habits done daily
are like water.
They wear away
our hard outer shells
and make us
softer
and yet
stronger
at the same time.

Everything we do every day
towards our goal
builds us up
and makes us stronger.
The efforts don’t seem like much
when we do them.
But every day
they add up
more
and
more.
