Control #MondayBlogs

The river doesn’t think

About the stones

It tumbled beneath its current

Nor the obstacles

That should arrest it in place

Instead it moves



Flowing ever onward

On its chosen path

The river doesn’t care

That it should be stymied by dams

Or dried up beneath the sun’s heat

Water changes shape

To adapt to the circumstance

And none of us say it is less

Of a river for that

The shift is in its nature

The ultimate response

To challenge:

Not to rail against the odds

But to simply BE

Continuing its journey

Even where it holds no control

Its power is in itself

It is the nature of the thing

As it can be the nature of people:

Moving forward

In imperfect circumstances

To create the dream we seek ~ Caroline A. Slee
