Some gaze at the stars looking for answers

while others holds hands and pray in silence

Regardless of how you choose to pray or lack of

what doesn’t change is our ingenuity to overcome the challenges we face.

If the esteemed River Ganges, Nile,Yangtze and many others

could narrate the story of mankind

what kind of stories would they share with us.

Stories like betrayal and forgiveness

hopes and unfulfilled dreams

the birth of new kingdoms and the fall of old ones.

If these rivers could talk

they would remind us of our greatest gift

our compassion, faith and understanding

treasured pieces that make up what it means to be human.
