I fill the pot with water
Sat it on the hot stove
Put a lid on it and waited for it to boil.
I underestimated you,
I thought you were going to evaporate
After a while, but you kept boiling.
You never stopped, you used the heat
as energy, driving you into a boiling point
You boil a little bit faster now, more powerful.
Soon, the half-empty pot became full
But you didn’t stop there, you kept going
Pushing onto the lid with every thriving push,
You let the steam out.
Gradually, you began to boil over.
Dropping bits of water on the side of the pot
Sizzling below on the stove.
Then the next, you overflowed
Water gushing out, bursting in excitement
What a hard worker you are!
Started with nothing, ended with a lot
You are so powerful when you don’t give up.
