Life is fragile

The precipice of life is so fragile.
Life is also so very very short
The choice of who lives and who dies
These choices are often beaten about
A right turn here
A wrong one there
A life could be saved
maybe a few will care
To be on that cliff
To sit on the edge
To look at the trees
Fallen from the edge
Most of the trees are dead
And this makes you wonder
How was the decision made
Of which would be thrown down
Some trees will live
And some trees will die
Is it just the trees
Or is it people who strive
The creek made a turn
The erosion was sudden
The place that I sit
is soon to be flood in
But I sit on the edge
And I ponder the day
Did I make all the right decisions
Or did I use my day to betray
When I die I will become dust
And return to the earth
But my spirit will travel
For there will be a rebirth
Will the path be difficult
Or will it be easy
Will the way be made simple
Or will it make u queasy
I look at the water
And I think and I pine
How can I get down there
And what would I find
The rapids and eddies
The whirlpools and ponds
They are all formed by erosion
Before the dirt was moved on
I wonder what they have seen
I wonder where they will go
Have they ever made a wrong turn
And how would they ever know
Will they make it all the way down stream
Will they continue to move
Or will they evaporate
And come down anew
Sometimes I wish I was water
No feelings for yesterday
Just flowing and turning
In so many different ways
No choices to make
no decisions to regret
No worries about
No one to have left
It is a dark and grey day
The wind is so cold
The water looks sparkling
In its ever changing mold
Who knows of the future
We can only study the past
The water will continue
To flow along this path
To find our valley
To find our stream
To find our happiness
Is what we all dream
Nature is beautiful
she makes this world a wonder
We all need to love her
Or we will make a blunder
She is all that we have
She is all that we need
to the gods and the goddess
We must all believe
I have always found my peace
Living within nature
The trees and the water
Are all here to be nurtured
