Bend at the river end
Curving around the obstacles
And the mountains gracefully
Creating beautiful vistas
Of the horizon and the river.
Then merging into wide vast ocean
It’s destination, it’s liberation.
Teaching us that many times in life
We need to bend around the problems
Not cut through them obstinately
To over come them
Even when vision is blocked.
The problems themselves paving us the way
For beautiful turns in life
Taking us in paths different
Adding beauty and purpose to the journey.
When we come around
The sky and the sea are waiting to
Astonish with the bright blue horizon
The green trees and brown Earth smiling
