I Feel Like a River


Sometime I feel like a river
Calm and peaceful going with the flows of life
Full of beautiful and mysterious things
Very complex waiting for discovery
From others and myself

Sometimes I feel live a river
Polluted, angry, raging, uncaring
And unfeeling I feel like
Drowning myself! I feel like rising up
I am a tide of emotions, when I feel like a river

When I feel like a river
I want you to come in and explore
Something's my scare you
Some may delight and mystify you
But I need you to keep fishing
When I feel like a river

    Using a river as a symbol is great, I have written a poem called the river.

    Sharp contrast. Using powerful imagery, with this poem- you have captured and vividly portrayed your extreme emotions very well. Quite a picture. Keep writing. Wish you the best. (Report) Reply

    I once lived by a river(Spokane) It had many wide rapids where the rainbow flashed in
    it's swirls.It's cool pools sparkled clear whete antelope, bear and wild mustangs came
    to drink.The mountains rose vertically, were forrested with huge conifers.That was
    1959.But that river still runs through my life, as I hope your river always runs in you. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
