Nature Advice

On a pole across your neck
Carrying two chinese water-pots
Praising the perfect one on the right
For its accomplishment, as you believe,
Why you blame the cracked one on the left?

Give the weak a chance, Nature advises!
It cannot contain the whole water, but
Garden expands everywhere: just plant seeds
On the left side of the path you walk.
See backwards: the cracked pot waters
A long line of flowers, drop after drop.
The poor pot offers you a rewarding grace.
So, pick up those flowers for decorations
Enjoy their fragrance; accept inequality
Since the weak ones are blessed by Nature.

As for my weakness: Take me for what I am
And better look for what is good in me.
