Lessons From A River




As the river runs
I try to keep up
Running alongside
I catch and lose my breath
My thoughts run with me
My feet too slow for the water
The river supports me...
keep going
rise above boulders
fall with grace and power
when at the edge of my path
The river teaches me...
rise and fall 
in frothy waves
breeding life where it first began
The river empowers me...
carry all my wisdom
hold all my fury and humility
The river reminds me...
mountain tops are my roots
oceans are my home
That I came from somewhere
I'm heading somewhere
and along the way
I will keep moving
learning
growing
ebbing
rising
withering
flooding
and most crucially...
flowing
