River

We are a river.

We were never meant

to be stagnant.

We are destined

for bigger things.

We are designed

to embrace all

the winding curves

the world throws at us.

You can build a dam

and try to stop

the inevitable

but you and I

will end up at

the ocean eventually.

Go with the flow.

You might actually

enjoy the ride

if you stop aiming

for the rapids.
