My Journey

Life mirrors a river

and like a river,

it takes shapes and courses

in direction that we either don’t control or are forced to make.

A force like no other

an experience that moulds minds,

and quenches a soul’s thirst.

The divinity of life

is mirrored by the river,

and like a river

it is always moving,

unless Mother Nature says otherwise.

    1. Great response. Crazy enough when I read anything creative writings about rivers. I usually thing of this movie passage:

      Kurtz: Where are you from, Willard?

      Willard: I’m from Ohio, sir.

      Kurtz: Were you born there?

      Willard: Yes, sir.

      Kurtz: Whereabouts?

      Willard: Toledo, sir.

      Kurtz: How far are you from the river?

      Willard: The Ohio River, sir?

      Kurtz: Uh-huh.

      Willard: About 200 miles.

      Kurtz: I went down that river once when I was a kid. There’s a place in that river – I can’t remember – must have been a gardenia plantation at one time. It’s all wild and overgrown now, but about five miles, you’d think that heaven just fell on the earth in the form of gardenias. Have you considered any real freedoms? Freedoms from the opinions of others. Even the opinions of yourself.
