The Fluvial Mind


If the path before you is clear,
It may be your eyes but definitely another's mind;
If you know what you are looking for,
Then that is all you will ever find.

Like a river has no choice but to flow,
Meet a lake, fight a mountain even though;
Disappear will it one day with a desert bend,
Or merge with the ocean in the end.

    Not spectacular by any means. Poor rhyme scheme, mediocre vocabulary, lack of convincing emotion, and purposeless meaning that has no power to move readers' thoughts in any certain direction. Like a river had no choice but to flow is a nice line that cleanly shocks the reader as they ponder that thought taken for granted in their mind. This poem does have a nice vague, almost morgue impression left upon my mind. It could be vastly improved, but yet already has a good start on being something worthwhile, which could be said of almost all poetry. (Report) Reply

    wonderful read. Life's realities are explained with a flowing river that merges in the ocean or goes unseen in the desert. enjoyed. (Report) Reply

    Striking and soothing. It flings the mind across a space of a renewed soul. Larger meanings, concrete feelings. Great job! (Report) Reply

    the poem, i think tells us about the various choices or path we take in our life,
    we can either disappear without leaving a mark in this now, without leaving stones unturned, or we can make something worth of our life and the world just like the drops of river eventually form the whole ocean. (Report) Reply
