A Bed of Kings

I woke up one day to be a river.

I woke up one day to be a river. Nothing swam through me

I woke up one day to be a river. Nothing swam through me nor drank

I woke up one day to be a river. Nothing swam through me nor drank from my edge;

life was simple.

One day I decided to look at every stone

One day I decided to look at every stone and for each

One day I decided to look at every stone and for each make up a name.

A sense of relieve

A sense of relieve snuck on me

with each label

with each label that I pulled out

with each label that I pulled out from my sleeve.

I then went to sleep being completely at peace.

I woke up again this time to a new season.

On my floor there were prints, made by the feet of men whose face

I can't remember.

and my rocks;

some of them are gone, most are out of place and a few, seem to be new.

Strangely enough,

Strangely enough, I still know who I am.

I decided then, to pay close attention to the contents of the water.

Tiny beings reveal themselves and said I was their father.

Soon after, most of them were gone, some others came along and a few still remain.

yet...

I still know what is my name.

But if I look closer, something in me tightens, that tends to be the sign to not look any further.

after all, many stones

after all, many stones are now unnamed

after all, many stones are now unnamed and a good King seeks

after all, many stones are now unnamed and a good King seeks above all things

after all, many stones are now unnamed and a good King seeks above all things to give order

after all, many stones are now unnamed and a good King seeks above all things to give order to the place

after all, many stones are now unnamed and a good King seeks above all things to give order to the place in which he lives.
