''The River And The Rock''

What would happen if you placed a wall in the middle of a river? Try to block it and the river will stop, rise to the level of the obstruction and flow easily over it.

Would that I too were a river
that rose to level of the rock
I would slowly and surely rise to the challenge before me
and eventually surpass any block

And whatever terrain I encounter
be it canyon or rocks bent on wrath
they would never affect my progress to my goal
but would simply mean I alter my path

Nor would I fear any precipice
nor any cliff no matter how tall
but leap self-assured that the best is yet to be
for water displays much beauty when it falls

And in the process of seeking my own level
eventually I would reach the sea
and reunited with the source from whence I have come
I'd become the very thing I seek to be!

The river rises to the level of any obstruction.
The terrain only affects the river's path, not its progress.
The river is not afraid to fall.
The river seeks the path of least resistance.
And eventually becomes the thing it seeks.
[Excerpt from The River And The Rock by Walt Goodridge, an unpublished manuscript]
