Ever heard of the Nile, Euphrates and the Ganges?
places with history, people and a lasting legacy,
but I know a place where everyone’s goes
and wallows in their despair,
the river that bears no name,
the river where people go to hide their shame,
their anguish and distress,
the river with no destination.
Do you know why this river goes nowhere?
because like guilt, anger and pride
It serves no purpose to drive you forward,
but to remain still and ignorant.
Don’t take my word for it
but superimpose your life in these characters,
walk in their shoes,
and ask yourself
has anger, hate, despair and unhappiness ever driven you forward?
I’m no preacher
but an observer and I read people
and wonder to myself why?
why did person A choose to do that?
and more importantly,
I always ask myself why I do what I do and for what purpose.
