River Of Life

By Tiffany Chronister

The water bubbles gently
Up from the spring of life
New life is given
As the gentle waters flow
Children play and laugh
In the shallow waters
Carefree and joyful
Around a bend the water drifts
Into adolescence
The way grows narrower
The waters swifter
Another small creek
Joins into life's river
Violent rapids form ahead
A fallen tree blocks the way
Depries collect around it
Old bottles and some trash
Polluting the waters.
Little by little
They shake loose
And continue downstream
The problems of adolescense
Left behind.
But the current picks up
Quicker and quicker to
The waterfall of early adulthood
Caught in the current
There's no turning back now
The waters of life crash downward
Into the rocks below.
The river changes again
New, like never before
Shallow swift waters
Meander downstream
As life continues
Rapids occasionally
And a few trees
All is quick now
Swift and smooth.
The waters of old age
Suddenly end
In the ocean of death.
