Water Conflict’s Options?

Water is a life-giver
Float conflicts on river’s back
Glide and bend around the rocks 
Ride the river to the ocean

Float conflicts on river’s back
Drown hopes in fear in water’s belly
Ride the river to the ocean
Water is a death delivered

Drown hopes in fear in water’s belly
Send thousands of new dreams downstream
Water is a death delivered
Celebrate the power we hold

Send thousands of new dreams downstream
Glide and bend around the rocks
Celebrate the power we hold
Water is a life-giver
