Emotion in Water


The river is raging

beauty that can’t be tamed

 emotion flowing continuously

defying to be named


What is the driving force

that causes it to rage

is it happiness or anger

difficult to gauge


Wandering down the banks

being drawn into the story

listening to the river talk

of its days of glory


Life began 

calm as can be

there was beauty around

for all to see


Then came strife

trees began to fall

building but no preservation

was the common call


Not to be deterred

the river raged on

building up power

till the strife was gone


Now things are peaceful

along the river bend

continuous passion for living

until the end
