The River of Life

The River of Life

O life-river, constantly flowing
Towards your cherished Goal
Why is your path not straight?
You flow slowly–side to side–
Through quaint village and mighty city
           Yet you continue.
Many a boulder and rocky snag
Or valley that speedily goes by
Flowing, flowing towards the mighty Expanse
The Goal is far, yet sometimes,
In the distance is a bright hint
           Of things to come.
Keep flowing my river,
Your tiny trickle
Will soon become a mighty torrent.

– Chetana Hein.
