As Peaceful as the River

I long to emulate
The simple purity
So effortlessly shown
By a peaceful river’s flow.

To channel it all from
That great mother source
In a beautiful unity
Is an act beyond our mere humanity.

Life divides us so
That our origin means little
In the long eternal battle
To preserve only one’s self.

The river holds no such malice
Merely part of a greater body
That transcends hate and fear
Its nature true and clear.
