The river and the life

a poem by Mohammad Jainul Abedin

Rivers are murmuring towards the sea
Rising from the spring of the peaks
They become bigger and bigger
Towards the final destination
The sea

Life is nothing but a river
Where the boat crosses with colorful sails
Sometimes rivers overflow the banks
With floods and cyclones
Somewhere they flow like narrow streams

The river and the life run in parallel
The river flows to the sea
The life blows to death
