Theme: Life


Sparkling in the sunshine
Pristine, white and pure
I am a snowflake there
High up above them all

Clear and shining,
Refreshing and rippling
Melting at the sun's request
Charging down beneath

The vigor of youth
Glorious power
As I hurtle down
Rocks be damned

Youth left behind
I start bloating up
As I lose my strength
And take life as it comes

I go with the flow
Accept all the muck
The rot and garbage
Flung daily at me

Vile and defiled
I'm black at heart
No life in me
Just feel like giving up

But nature has her rules
Being born a river
I must flow on and on
Till the day I merge with the mighty ocean

Will I be cleansed?
I do not know
Or will the ocean refuse me?
Saying I'm dirty, tainted and vile

I started out pure
Gurgling and laughing
Up there in the mountains

Deep down below, I still am.
