Eternal River


Born of divinity
into a River of forgetting,
and recollection

like the water we are
destined for death and rebirth
every moment.

Souls hardwired for truth,
the whirlpool a momentary surrendering;
our fate undeterred by struggle.

Upstream now a dream
we forget,
purely for the joy of remembering.

The eternal River
seeking Sea or confluence
to and from source we flow.
