Heart like a River

It’s my exams fornight! Hence the lack of posting since a couple of weeks back. Here’s a short poem to commemorate the middle of my finals:

River

Let your heart be like a river;
wide and flowing freely.
They may throw sticks and stones,
but it ain’t no biggie –
You aren’t a brook now! You’re a river.

Let your heart be like a river.
when hungry beasts perch on your banks
and scoop for lunching bounty;
well, share your riches without angst –
You are no fish tank, you’re a river.

Let your heart be like a river
’round those mountains and hills (and molehills).
They may stand impudently,
but you ease ’bout them with thrills.
You’re not a pipe – you’re a river.

So let your heart be like a river:
let no pebble dam up your soul;
feed the critters who come by bold;
flow around if not just through –
and soon, the ocean opens up to you!
