I am the River

As water gushes down the rocks,

never can a tree nor dam hinder its path.

It flows with a steady rhythm,



All the animals stay out of its path

for the river never holds back,

but rumbles

and roars.


A bird free from the cage,

singing daring tunes.

Neither lightning nor rain

weighs down this bird!


Only time will tell

where this bird will be,

but like a bird or river

I will never give up.
