Flowing Along With The Tide - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

if you wish to know
the heart of a land
go to its best river
and hear how it sings

if you wish to really know
how the people
of a land feel go to
its greatest river
and see how it flows

and if you wish to live
with the land go to
its holiest river and
make a vow to swim
to the tune of its tide
