Life is like a River

Journey of a River

A River

A drop, a trickle, it swells and grows

little by little, untamed it flows

laughing and bubbling beneath the sun

fearlessly thru valleys and forests it runs.

Ebb and flow over pebbled beds

Rain falls, it broadens, water spreads.

Man taps its strength to harnesses its power

Dammed – it deepens and then moves slower.

Imprisoned by concrete, it finally breaks free

to finish its journey, heading to the sea.
