This river has flowed
since long before I was born
and breathed life into these woods
deep within a landscape so torn.

The gentle trickle fills my heart
and transports me to a place
where death and destruction
exist not within time and space.

Each rock veers its course
but still it carries on
to someplace unknown
where true strength belongs.
