Where Is Old Man River Going?
Old man river keeps on flowing and flowing and flowing,
it's doubtful if he knows where he might be going.
Through meadows, over rocks and down steep falls,
he keeps on traveling crossing many nature walls.
He gives a drink to flowers within his path each day,
animals are pleased to see him pass their way.
On and on he flows onward into a river even bigger,
there he gains strength and much more vigor.
Providing transportation for many boats and ships,
just like he was following much higher scripts.
His fate and destiny were planned before his time,
he has no choice but to go this route so sublime.
On and on he will go till he reaches the wide ocean,
continuing onward always full of force and motion.
Never rebelling or deciding he doesn't want to go,
unlike mankind who often chooses where he will flow.
