Time is a river and a stone.

The River is mighty and all moving,

yet will one day dry up and be no more.

The stone, large and immovable,

will be weathered by the river,

but will remain long after it has dried.

When I was young

I thought myself the stone,

and time the river.

But Now I've realized

that I am the river,

and time the stone.
