The River's End


For much of my life I had followed the river, searching in earnest for its end, when at last I came to a rift over which the water poured into the unfathomable depths.

“After all my years of searching,” I cried out, “have I finally come to the river’s end?”

“No,” replied the Voice. “You have only come to the beginning.”

Without undue hesitation I leapt into the water and was swiftly swept over the edge, where I found myself plunging headlong into the mysterious depths of Eternity.
