Life begins on the river.

No matter what, it will

flow to live.

The gifts of the Earth spring forth

by the riverbed.

Since the dawn of creation

Its mouth spews new beginnings.

We bring our wares in wagons

to cross over

We bring food to ease people’s hunger

We bring aid and relief to the sick

From the doctors with no borders.

We see children crossing currents

though rough and wild,

That is their dedication.

Risking their life and limbs

There’s no better future

Than a good education.

Under the moon, love stories were birthed

and songs were written.

Her long hair was a flowing golden river.

As her lover comes and goes,

Comforting her like the ebb

and flow of the waves.

Her love was unending like the waters

that flow through the sea

And promises were laid under

the blue moon

Sealed and kept alive by the soul spirits

That dwell underneath.

Wars have begun and ended on the river.

A place to hide when haunted down by enemies

As fortress and escape it has stood—

By the Bridge on the River Kwai,

Men have died and blood has been spilled.

The river is a gallant battleground

In honor and defense of our


We have given birth on the River

and life has ended there.

The moon is a witness to its cycle of birth and rebirth.

In the river we sing with joy, with sorrow,

We give thanks.

Life will end at the river

While we are singing our last song.

Stella Theresa Luna is a n internationally acknowledge poet who lives in Philippines.
