She is a river flowing to meet her sea: The Story of a River

This is where my poetry journey started from. It was 15 years back, I wrote this, as I made my first Facebook account and it asked to write lines about yourself. I had no words, so I penned down a poem. This was the first poem I typed directly on description section on Facebook.

However, I lost the original version of poem, this is a generic poem I made out of it for The River, not me, anymore, but a river, only. I just told how it started, with few lines.

Here I tried to sing it, this is the YouTube Link to the song.

I am a river 

Flowing to meet my sea

To meet my ocean

With the winds I flow 

With the turns I turn

I want to carry the pebbles 

I want to carry the stones 

That comes in my way 

I want to take with me the roses 

And the petals of flowers on the way, 

I want to take the leaves 

That falls in me

And all the beauty that holds.

I want to carry the love, care, 

Affection of people

I am a river 

Flowing to meet my sea

To meet my ocean

As I move towards 

My goal of meeting my ocean.

Through my sea

Yes, this journey is very long, 

Yes, this journey is not easy

But I get a touch of my sea

Touch of my ocean

With each rain drop 

That falls from the sky onto me

For the clouds come from the ocean

I am a river 

Flowing to meet my sea

To meet my ocean

I want to carry the sorrow 

And leave it on my banks 

I want to flow to unknown places 

To meet the unknown people 

I want to save animals in forests

I am the house to fishes 

Ducks and crocodiles

For I am a river 

Flowing to meet the sea

To meet my ocean

I am a river

I am mother

I am a daughter

I am a river 

Flowing to meet my sea

To meet my oceans

Yes, this journey is very long 

Yes, this journey is not easy

But I get a touch of my ocean 

With each rain drop 

That falls from the sky onto me

For the clouds come from the ocean 

With the winds I flow 

With the turns I turn….

I am a river 

Flowing to meet the sea

To meet my ocean
