myriad colours of earth poem 3

Winds of change will blow
Sooner or later rocks will bow
And the river of life will rage through
Dark caves of ignorance will be left behind.

If you can’t help the river
That will be forgiven
Just be careful to stay away
From its path or don’t obstruct that.

If you fall in her path
Or become an obstruction
Willingly or unwillingly
It will wash you away with flow.

Similar is river of civilization
When the ice of centuries melt
It sets the river of change free
Don’t even dare to stand in its way!

That day is not far when hungry mouths,
Kept in darkness for years will come out
And realize that they have been robbed
They will move forward to get what’s theirs.
