A River Found Least

Adrift unaware, unconcerned the direction some flow.
Caught on a current, carried far not pursuant
Only riding to be said that they go.
Miles drift behind and the best that some find
Are the remnants of leftover dreams
Few speak of spinning, yet others beginnings
The darkest of falling and screams

Many rivers pour westward while some fully flood to the east
Still more surge out southward but those that flow north are found least

Proud down the trade tides with wind in their sails
A course toward fortune some set
What profit awaits them on shores laid in silver?
If time and their Maker arenít met.
Soon wretched besotted, more under than over some go
Frantic and flailing to find a confluence
Desperate to ride the true flow

Many rivers pour westward while some fully flood to the east
Still more surge out southward but those that flow north are found least

For miles of frustration, hopes tattered and fading
Scant fruit from their efforts these find
No peace in their knowing
Nor hopes for their going
Mere ripples fast fading behind

Where least is the greatest and love is the standard
Sail souls full of thankful reprieve
Bound there together, delivered forever
From selfish intents that deceive

No point on the compass or star of the sky
Can guide one to this blessed place
In Christís sure forgiving and empowered living
Might seekers find their surest trace

Many rivers pour westward while some fully flood to the east
Still more surge out southward but those that flow north are found least
