"Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so love the people who treat you right, forgive the people who don't, and believe that everything happens for a reason."


I am a river
always flowing and on the move
Giving back to those who
are loyal to me
Hearing life all around
Engulfing me with warmth
and praise
At times, I feel polluted
Overflowing with fears and worry
sometimes loosing control
Gaining speed and drowning myself
in my own tears
I don't know where I'm going
Just going wherever the current
takes me
Not knowing where I'll end up
Living life to the fullest and
getting the most out of it
Somtimes i wonder...
What would it be like to be the sky?
Stretching over lands and mountains
Watching over the ones I love
I envy the sky
Then I remember I'm a river
I'm proud to be what I am
Not caring what others think
Always flowing and on the move
I am a river

The author's comments:
This was an assignment that I had to do for English. I put a lot of thought into this poem. I love nature and decided to compare myself to something that had to do with it. I truly believe in living your life to the fullest because you never know when it's going to end.
