The Stream

Vanessa Williams

Spirit,
A stream, a river, a flowing body,
That is what you are,
And we each are droplets,
In the course,
Are bubbling, babbling, over the path forward,
No awareness of our destination,
Or how we’ll make it
Through,
But we are here,
And flowing,
In and of,
Made of,
Because of
You
This our path,
Destination unknown,
Are safe and secure by unseen borders,
Flowing,
Splashing,
Going,
Always moving forward,
On,
Marked by shifts,
Waves, torrents,
Boulders, rocks,
And
On we flow
