HAND IN EMMER WATER

Dink jy jy is onvervangbaar, heer/ dame? Vanoggend rede gehad om die versie uit my “pampiere” te gaan uitdelf. Dis brutaal reguit en presies in die kol:

Sometime when you’re feeling important, Sometime when your ego’s in bloom, Sometime when you take it for granted, You’re the best qualified man in the room. Sometime when you think that your passing Will leave an un-fillable hole, Just remember this simple example, And see how it humbles your soul.

Take a bucket and fill it with water, Put your hand in up to your wrists, The hole that you make when you leave it, Is the measure of how much you’ll be missed. You may thrash all you want when you enter, You may stir up the waters galore, But just wait for a moment And it is still the same as before.

The moral of this is quite simple, Just do the best that you can. But please always remember There is no irreplaceable man

– Saxon N. White Kessinger, 1959
