Life Is A Flowing River - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar

Life is like river,
Which keeps on flowing
Hurdles and downfall can never stop it from flowing
It spread the life of happiness wherever it flows
It pass thru the baby grass to the parent trees
And from successful of hill to downfall of heap.

It keeps all alive by its love of touch
It flows wherever it finds it's way
It is ready for any change in flow.
It nourishes the gem of knowledge
To all living ones on the earth.
If one of its path flowing into stagnant water,
It is not good for living ones.
But still thrives a micro ones in that water
So is their knowledge also becomes stagnant like that water.
They keep spreading poisons where ever possible.
When one drink it to quench thirst of knowledge
They are killed by the same poisonous water.

Oh Beautiful river!
Life is only one
Making it beautiful
Lies in our hand.
'Please spread the message of Peace Happiness where ever you flow'.

    River flows in this Earth and life also flows more in this earth. Facing many hurdles we proceed ahead with life. Life is ready to flow with change. There is knowledge of service by side shores.
