A philosophy for living


THE RIVER OF TIME               

 

The river of earthly time

flows continually, carrying

with it equally, the beauty

we want to remember, and

the ugly we want to forget.

Thus, we can sometimes

blame and other times enjoy

-- but never can we control it.

 

For it is impossible not to go

with the flow. This we know

internally. But while we are

rowing frantically among the

waves of angry, the worst

(soon after it’s seen) is carried

down stream—and the flow

always runs smooth again...

 

like after our journey through

earthly time, eventually reaching

our projected goal, we see the

peace and beauty of Eternity.
