In the river of life I swim
Against the current,
I swim with the current.
I lie on my back and allow the river to take me.
I enjoy the sun on my body and the sparkles all around.
I am taken by the spiral,
Down into the belly of the river,
I lose myself.
I am shaken, I am broken, I die.
Then I am spit out by her and I’m bobbing around,
Trying to decide,
Whether or not to swim against the tide.
