Winding river
The banks on the shore
How they twist and turn
The decisions I've made
Make the murky waters churn
It's that winding river
That holds the water of my life
Creation of my being
Currents of strife
Yet on this winding journey
Each time I've reached the shore
There I've found reason
To return to turgid water once more
For life is but a journey
Sometimes the river slows
To allow me to see it's pitfalls
It's just the way the river flows
Each of us has a winding river
With highs and lows in every spot
It's the only river we're given
We have to make the best of what we've got

Life, expressed beautifully! Without the tumultuous currents and undertows, where would be the passions in life? The waters may become muddied with strife along the way, but if we didn't have the strife we'd never learn to appreciate the true magnificence of peace.

Loved the way you expressed life with a river's flow....
