Journey - a poem by Darren Riley, Service User at CGL Newark

6 October 2016

The river of life is like a river of dreams.

It flows along and sometimes gets choppy,

It’s what it does.

But the calm waters await,

In a tranquil spot,

Where it’s still.

Flow with it, go with the flow,

If you find an oarsman,

Who knows these rivers well,

Hang onto them,

They will guide you through.

At the end of the journey, awaits a place,

Full of song and happiness.

The oarsman is needed no more,

But is still there to guide you,

To where the river meets the sea,

AND HOME
