Life is but a stream…

… pulling us through time,
raked along in the mainstream tide
unless we hide
in eddies, in shallows, in shadows
taking refuge, holding fast —
but a stream you stream alone
is just a little dreamless sleep
before, from on high,
the deadly hook sweeps down.

Apologies to #dVerse, John Lennon, Langston Hughes and Shakespeare for this depressing poem!

See Part 2 to cheer up.
