Sea Of Immortality

October 7, 2008
By Bethany Maxwell, Dolores, CO

The river flows through life as fish in the sea
The soul follows every twist every turn
Follow them and you will see
Follow life as it goes in time you will burn
Life flows as a river around turns and bends please follow me

Follow the river through its course
Through The pain and trials
Follow with truth if in vain the pain will worsen
Through The long hard miles
Follow the river through its course

Through the dams past the currents will flow
Through the trees and vines that you know
Some places flow high some flow low
Some filled with pleasure some with woe
Yet it shall not slow

The river of life it flows through the turns
Follow as the river moves on
To the ocean, to the sea
There your soul shall be lost
In the sea of immortality

Wow, this is very good. It really speaks about how easy it is to fall into repetative sin (something all humans are quite skilled at). I am the same age as you, but I've only been writing for about two years now. Great job!
