One Drop

One drop of tear doesn’t make you cry,
One wisp of air doesn’t make you fly.

One drop of terror doesn’t make you afraid,
One coin of wealth doesn’t complete your trade.

One drop of water doesn’t make a fountain,
One piece of pebble doesn’t make a mountain.

One stalk of leaf doesn’t make a tree,
One day of freedom doesn’t make you free.

One lost battle doesn’t win a war,
One space of distance doesn’t make it far.

One speck of dirt doesn’t make it filthy,
One night of nonsense doesn’t make you faulty.

One drop of hatred doesn’t make a curse,
One drop of emptiness doesn’t make it sparse.

One wink of smile doesn’t make you happy,
One link of humour doesn’t make you whacky.

One beam of light doesn’t make it bright,
One drop of strength doesn’t make your might.

One kiss of love doesn’t make your life,
One wish of death doesn’t make you die.

One act of mischief doesn’t make you naughty,
One act of temper doesn’t make you haughty.

Drops full of nothing doesn’t make everything,
But just one drop of everything does sum nothing.
