Who knew I needed water,
Maybe the doctor.
For a flower to blossom,
Now that I’m in college I know the problem.
Water is the answer to health,
Which now I know means more than wealth.
I’m still a parched sunflower,
Because isn’t the daily intake equivalent to a shower?
But here I am growing,
While the younger flowers are groaning.
I know I’ve grown up considering I talk about drinking water,
I can already hear myself nagging my future daughter.
