the river of life

In the river of life

Driftwood we are

Polished by experience

Honed by wisdom

Scarred and formed by reality

Dressed with the fabric of destiny

Education to others who watch and listen 

In awe and amusement our lives glisten

On this side struggle and grief

On the other green pastures

Decisions decisions decisions

Aaaaaah! A decision at last

Temporary though; we do not believe

In the next flood we will have to leave

Come to rest on another bend

With the hope that this is the end

Over decades the grains of wisdom show

With life's experience we glow

Decisions, decisions, decisions again

We know that this is not the last

Decisions will come one day again

With the experience of the past
