Despair is the one sin that cannot be forgiven.

Wa Thiong'o [James Ngugi] Ngugi (1938 )

 Despair is the one sin that cannot be forgiven.

Wa Thiong'o [James Ngugi] Ngugi (1938– )


River of emotion

Stream that flows ceaselessly

Down through every tributary

She gathers momentum

Coursing the plains

That had been left untapped

Filling and reaching the farthest extreme

The point where souls meet…

Unify and identify


 With her dance of lively sparkling bubbles

She tries so longingly to engage

The stillness of the quiet pool

To feed it, to evoke its desire to flow

Encourage and urge it to remember

Just how good it used to be


Swirling and twirling

Dropping down rapids

Touching bodies of foreign matter

Brushing past boulders

Feeling the warmth of the midday sun

Hiding in the coolness of a gentle stream


When night skies reflected upon

With her brilliant resplendent jewels

Lucent orb casting her magical glow

She tries to encourage it to flow

It lays still and so silent… unmoving


Will it refuse to merge?

Failing to blend

With crystallized emotions

Or substance

To remain forever…

Trapped in its dark abyss?

It is only in the water's stillness
that we can see our reflection. Yet
it continues to ebb and flow even though
it is only visible when we look with the heart.

Pleanty of metaphor in this flowing poem, Elga. We can hold back in life and become stagnant or we can move forward with the motion of life and keep on keepin' on. Our strength comes with moving forward, facing all that lies there, collecting energy and rolling into the next lesson packed bend. Beautiful poem!!
Take care,
