Merged to Destroy

image courtesy Amit Hardi,
Heading to destruction

Meandering through the  valley

I came upon a  stream

It threatened to engulf me

I surrendered to its whim

Merged thus we rushed along

Singing a wild incoherent song

As the steep mountains approached

Young streams  joyfully joined our fold

The gushing stream now swelled with pride

With its loud spattering  my calmness vied

To be heard above the din

Louder and louder it got

Till the roaring stream forgot

The beautiful promise

It had once  made   to me

Gushing, swirling, roaring we went

Raging towards the sea

Steady – I whispered softly

Trying my best to soothe

But my gentle sighs were lost

In its bold thundering whoosh

Now as we head full sway

Towards impending doom

I balefully look back, to that fateful day

When I gently meandered  along

Humming my own sweet song

The day I met the stream

And let go of all my  dreams

The stream that engulfed me

Drowned out my voice

Its false promises I believed

For that I’ve paid the price
