My road is unlike a river

This road is unlike a river

Though like a river it meanders

With large and tiny bends

And mighty and feeble swirls

Oft in silence and secrecy

Though like a river it braids

With channels like blood veins

And many an eroding bank

Oft with energetic sound

This road is unlike a river

I am certain of it

Like the Okuk Highway

Like the Hiritano Highway

It goes uphill and into the clouds

It goes through countless swamps

This road is certainly unlike a river

Though it becomes murky at times

And clear at other times

You can’t drink off it

Nor bath in it

This road…is my road.
