I am flowing towards my dream,
Casting behind all fears and screams.
I am flowing forward for the best,
I am flowing stronger than the rest.
I am flowing deep and far,
I am flowing where my goals are.
My velocity, nobody can figure,
Outside calm, but inside with vigour.
I am cutting mountains, I am crushing hills;
Bearing glorious sun, also glorified chills.
I am energizing the fields,
I am nourishing my banks,
I am bowing low, with a greater flow,
for everyone who says, “Thanks!”
I am flowing for the greater good,
I am flowing through deserts and woods.
I am flowing to live my dream;
to show the power of a determined stream.
I am flowing by diligent ways,
I am flowing every night, every day.
I am flowing with a humble flow,
I am flowing with confidence’s glow.
I am flowing to win the world,
I am flowing beautifully curled.
I am flowing for an ideal you see,
Not river or bay, but for the sea.
Now, do you think this is all I care?
Nay! A Pacific’s waiting over there!
