2 My River II (The Riverbank Reflected - Upside Down)


Floating down to the tide
With riverbank on either side
Each green and serene
Lament
For both appear better
Than where I currently am
But upon reflection from afar
The sight is not quite so bright
Both worlds turned upside down
Perhaps a better choice to drown?
Further down the river's flow
Going with the undertow
Fate will determine which side to land
And once ashore?
The scene that looked so green and serene
Will be proved right
The other side not quite so bright
But instead
Still upside down.
