I Am A River


Sometimes I flow smoothly
Tranquil, Gentle and kind
Spreading happiness around me
Leaving smiling faces behind

I flow with grace and charm
Making barren lands fertile
The children play by my banks
The tired sit and rest awhile

The poets gaze at my beauty
And write songs praising me
The lovers talk of my passion
To meet the vast blue sea

And yet at times I am restless
I flow in great fury and rage
Crushing all that comes in my path
Refusing to be stopped or caged

I pound at all that comes my way
I smash huge stones and rocks
In anger I flood cities and homes
I break down all that blocks

I create to destroy and destroy to create
For that is the role nature allotted me
I play out my role with all honesty
Until I reach the beloved sea
