Oh, great river, how do you remain so humble?
So great and ancient yet no ego to show
No anger no resentment, even when covered in snow
Present, content, happy, as the surrounding world may rumble
Without arrogance, providing a straight-shot right through the jungle
Be honored for your importance and never feel low
But never feel the pride that stops life itself and prevents one to grow
I encourage you to keep on being yourself, even if the world around you were to crumble
Hello strange human, why do you acknowledge me?
For I am nothing to many of you in this world we live
Most hardly see me for more than a rock or a tree
Sometimes the ignorance can stab me like a shiv
But you are right! I never let my self-image agree
Even though it may hurt, it’s always best to forgive
