"Live like you're at the bottom even if you're at the top" Kevin Jonas Sr.

The big empty hole yearning for life
The smooth water silently going downstream
The rough rocks pulling apart the water
breaking the calmness
The water glides into a pool
surrounded by moss giants
The monsters close in on the water
and won’t ever get out, or so it thought
Eventually the rocks wear away
and the water goes through the small crevice of the eroded giants
Free again silently flowing down the river

The author's comments:
This poem is not only about a river, but it is also about life. The rocks are those things keeping us from our dreams and the water is you pushing through.
