Journey of the River

Updated on November 23, 2016
Source

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

      That's true...we have no control over many things in this life...Therefore what we cannot control we need to go with God's flow not just our flow.

      Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Nithya, Your poem took me to Athirappalli waterfalls near to my hometown. For a moment I felt as if I've reached the bottom of the falls that gushes into the river.

      Interesting!
