Rivers are moving, moving,
Always moving,
Working around roots and branches,
Never stopping for anything.
Soil, boats, and fallen leaves get swept up in the current
Forced to come along for the ride.
No matter what happens
The river keeps moving,
Just rushing, flowing along.
Rivers don’t have minds,
They just keep moving
As they have since the dawn of time.

Time is moving, moving,
Always moving,
Working around the clock, day and night,
Never stopping for anything.
Everything gets wrapped up in it,
Forced to come along for the ride.
No matter what happens,
Time keeps on moving,
Just ticking along.
Time doesn’t have a mind,
It just keeps on moving,
Since the first day of the world.

Time and rivers are moving, moving, always moving,
Never repeating,
Never stopping for anything or anyone,
Don’t bother trying, you are at their mercy,
It’s been that way since the beginning,
And it will be that way until the end.

This is my first piece so constructive criticism would be appreciated, but if you could tell me what you like that would also be good.
