Resist the River

By , Mattawan, MI
The rock stands firm,

Resisting the swift current of the river.

Don’t go with the flow little pebble.

Stand out, be different, do what feels right,

Not what the river commands you.



Few have succeeded;

Most succumb to the merciless force the river provides.

Don’t go with the flow little pebble.

Stand out, be different, do what feels right,

Not what the river commands you.


The River is an increasing pressure,

Pushing harder as the minutes tick by.

Don’t go with the flow little pebble.

Stand out, be different, do what feels right,

Not what the river commands you.


What changes will take place if the river succeeds?

None, and as a result, all would remain the same.

A glorious future could be lost.

Don’t go with the flow little pebble.

Stand out, be different, do what feels right,

Not what the river commands you.


The rock is like a barrier, an obstruction for the river to overcome.

It is easier to clear a field full of obstacles than to dodge through it.

Don't go with the flow little pebble.

Stand out, be different, do what feels right,

Not what the river commands you.


Why does the river get to decide where a rock stands firm?

Surely a free choice is provided for those who stand up for what’s right?

Don’t go with the flow little pebble.

Stand out, be different, do what feels right,

Not what the river commands you.


You need not worry for your creator has a plan. No matter how big your enemy may be,

You can know that you have someone even larger watching over you.

So don’t go with the flow little pebble.

Stand out, be different, do what feels right,

Not what the river commands you.
