You cannot just hurl your problems down river,
not like someone else will take claim to them.
You cannot just lock the vexation away in immure,
it’s just not viable to have, your shame condemned.
They will softly flow downstream nearing a waterfall,
it’ll seem like this verse has reached its denouement,
it’ll be free for a moments time before it crashes below
until its tumbled and pummeled in sadistic enslavement.
Even after all the torture, it has submissively endured,
the inevitable motion makes the effort seem worthless,
as there is no use in fighting the mighty force of buoyancy,
behind the cowardice, you can’t hide, as it comes to the surface.
