THE STREAM OF LIFE (c) By Polly Guerin

The ever changing attitude of the stream

At once calm and quiet reflects our dream

Sometimes it rests dormant in shallow waters

And gives us time to pause in our quarters

To reflect upon the never ending steady course

Yet at times life speeds forward without remorse

A day interrupted may bring change in the narrows

Steady on we overcome obstacles stifling sorrows

There is something about water, the sea, the pond

That soothes life’s tribulations with silent sound

Though hardship may seem an inescapable end

Look to the gentle waters to calm and surrend

With the slightest change in the water’s flow

Like the stream, life continues, this we know

We maneuver away from obstacles in our path

Facing challenges with renewed vigor, not wrath

Knowing our actions determine the flow of life

Whether it be more peaceful or full of strife

Reach instead for the gentle pools to comply

While the water’s well-spring brings supply.
