Journey of the River
Just like the river, travel through the journey called "Life." Take one day at a time and keep moving on, never give up.
The day will come when you will realize all your dreams. It may be just around the corner, and you may never get to reach it if you just stop.
Go with the flow, just like the river that rushes towards the sea winding around all obstacles in the path, just to reach the ultimate destination. Come what may the river never stops.
Jumping up and above rocks and boulders
Winding its way around swishing swirling
Rolling obstacles pushing them away
The river journeys on carving its path
Bubbling gushing pushing forward
Not minding anything not being bothered
Having just one goal in mind
To reach the destination of silver sands
And so the river journeys to the ocean
With single-minded true devotion
Always flowing moving on
Day and night the river flows along
Until it reaches its ultimate destination
With great effort on its part and true dedication
The river, an example to be followed
Every obstacle tunneled and truly hollowed
