A River Called “The-Way-Things-Are”

While I am a human, she is flowing 

While I am thinking my busy thoughts, she is flowing 

Before I was, she had been flowing 

After I have been, she will be flowing 

She flows, that is her nature

Her water comes from the mountain high above the clouds

Land so high that most humans forget it is there 

Her water is what gives her life,

Just like my body 

We are both made up of billions of water particles 

Yet, she does not consider herself superior to her water

She simply flows 

And her flowing is dictated by the forces of nature;

Wind, gravity, temperature, plants, and animals.  

Perhaps, this is the lesson I was meant to learn from her,

To simply flow with the forces of Earth 

And be natural 

And love myself for being so natural
