The Journey of a River

Kahlil Gibran reminds us that a river trembles with fear before flowing into the sea. Before disappearing altogether, the river reflects on a journey that started high in the mountains. Although the river may feel afraid, the river cannot go back.

This essay is a reflection on the story of a river and the intangible pain of living with unexpressed grief.

The river can not go back.
Nobody can go back.
To go back is impossible in existence.

Kahlil Gibran
