Wow Craig! This is powerful stuff and could have so many hidden meanings pertaining to perhaps, powerful people too. I guess we all begin as rivulets, but few make it to the sea ... and what do they do with that power once they get there?
This has given me much to think about ... love it! :-) x
You're right to think in metaphors, if you think of a trickle as one person and the sea as a collective you can kinda get where my head was going with this one.

Craig, I love this! It is the little things and experiences we accumulate throughout the years (or tributaries) that make us stronger. (Roaring seas). I don't know whether the metaphors I have highlighted were meant or whether this is just a fun poem, but that's what I'm taking...so there!
I love this too, Craig. Life's a journey, along the way we grow into better versions of our selves...or we make something out of the very tiny bits of what we have. Being the sea now I guess you mean to say you are now an overcomer. :-)
