Calm and peaceful
reflecting light
shows me my reflection
is home to many creatures
Yes, I'm talking about a river

Rivers flow, and rivers run
they can be beautiful
but they can be destructive

Raging waters
can soar out of its banks
flowing rapidly, uncontrollably
they surge forward
towards home, and buildings
It's an incredible sight

Not stopping for anything or anyone
taking one thing and then another
roads covered in the murky mess
houses destroyed, some gone

The whole community working together
to fight back
But their work seems to be useless.
The waters rise, not wanting to crest

Finally after days it stops and slowly
it seeps back into it banks
calmly flowing just like usual.
It's like it never happened

But everyone knows it did,
