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.
