Sometimes we say dismissively:
“it’s just a drop in the bucket.”
But in fact, a drop means a lot,
as they say: “a drop wears away a stone.”
A drop can kill, a drop can save.
Sometimes we lack at least a drop of conscience
For it is this drop that gives us the right
call yourself human.
Sometimes they ask to “take pity on a drop of blood”
This means that this drop is necessary for our body,
so that we stay alive.
A drop of grief can kill us
a drop of happiness can save us.
