Because of the unending flow

Of memory, scaring pain has its way

Staying afloat in the water of life,

Anchoring itself like rocks in a river.

 

Indeed, the river of memory flows deep,

Washing away uncertainty, revealing

 The painful truth, which—like memory—never lies;

If it didn’t happen, the memory would not be.

 

Yet, between the banks of this flowing river,

Its waters likewise wash over its embedded

Rocks of pain, eroding a channeled waterfall;

Particle pain spewed into the calming sea of life.

 

And there in the calming clear waters, strong will

Life, riding the ship of Zion, daily stands perpendicular

At her bow; sailing with guided determined winds.

While pain blows away, memory floats in love’s peace.

Sailing Life’s Waters: Daily Because of the unending flow Of memory, scaring pain has its way Staying afloat in the water of life, Anchoring itself like rocks in a river. Indeed, the river of memory flows deep, Washing away uncertainty, revealing The painful truth, which—like memory—never lies; If it didn’t happen, the memory would not be. Yet, between the banks of this flowing river, Its waters likewise wash over its embedded Rocks of pain, eroding a channeled waterfall; Particle pain spewed into the calming sea of life. And there in the calming clear waters, strong will Life, riding the ship of Zion, daily stands perpendicular At her bow; sailing with guided determined winds. While pain blows away, memory floats in love’s peace.
