Mystic River by Adam Levon Brown

The mystic river bids welcome to us all

Many will drink and many will fall

The waters are raging but the cleansing is pure

Many will risk a dip for the sacramental cure

Wash away the sins is what it will do

The river will make a person righteous and true

Hatred has no place in this river

The waters are cold and will make you shiver


Shiver away the false perceptions of self

And find the truth behind the mind’s shelf

Realization is what the river will give

You will feel like you finally know how to live


This river is truly a gift from above

Bathe in its glory and you will be as free as a dove

This river is but a metaphor for eternal love
