Mountain river

I don’t want to flow

says the mountain river

First few steps are joy

I jump and shout,

I run free

hit the rocks


I meet other rivers

changed course

we both lose ourselves

I visit holy cities

wash dirt and sin

circle of life and death

faithful prayers

Flow heavy and sad

The sea is far

where it all started

end and new beginning

It’s my destiny

But I know too much


Oh mountain river

flow backwards

Away from the worldliness

from sins and sinners

Back to where

you can shout and sing

And play with rocks

Return to the source
