I want to remain in the river

I Want To Remain In The River

I want to remain in the river

Flowing freely, raging rapidly

Carving out rocky smooth monuments

to my passing presence

Stirring inspirational songs

in the silence of shifting streams.

 

I want to remain in the river

Poured into only from source divine

Drawing along through power, affect and beauty

all that would hinder my course to open sea

Giving place to such varied, teeming life

positing survival upon abundant banks.

 

I want to remain in the river

Unrestrained, carefree, rolling on

Sure in purpose, which can never be defeated

although thousands rise to block my victory

Remaining calm, in water washed countenance

the face of God may be seen in me.
