***River


Life

Layers after layers
Sucked up all the elements of light

In the abyss
A crone lies in the dark, pitch
Mystery of all the mysteries

No mind over there ever reached
Mother of all curiosities

Lower of the lowest
Sad of the saddest wave


Brighter than the brightest
No heart over there ever reached

In the zenith
A beautiful fairy resides
Wonder and surprises

Higher than the highest
Joy and delight

I know both of them
Joy and sorrow

I am your life
I go through
Higher than the high and lower than the low.

    River is like a wealthy man,
    When he don't spend wisely..
    Like a river sometimes you wonder it dries in seconds... (Report) Reply

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
