The River

The River

The river used to run both ways
A sort of crossroads 
Both turbulent and smooth

Here the water flowed freely
But now the course is changing
So which direction do you choose?

The left
And stay with the easy flow of water
The charted path well travelled
Staying with what you know


The right
With its unknown obstacles
A stream that is difficult to follow
With no clear destination

The river is drying up
Soon there will be no water left
The tide grows urgent

So where will you go
Do you stay with the flow
Or swim against the current
