Read this story about one such river (you'll need to sign in).
We considered what the story could be a metaphor for. Here are some of our ideas:
The steam never wanted to change, and it is suddenly forced to change. So, it's like my brother. He did not want to come to France, but he was forced to come. Now he likes it here. He's changed now!
It is like the sand is a person who doesn't let another person (the river) through.
If you refuse help, you'll never get things done.
The grass isn't always green.
Rivers cross lots of barriers and try to reach the sea or the ocean. Similarly human beings face a lot of problems and troubles, and overcome the barriers to reach their destiny.
If you don't try, how do you know if you can do it?
The river twists and turns like a slithering snake trying to catch its prey. Humans don't always reach their targets.
You are young. You grow up, you go to school. Your life changes. I live in Turkey for 5 years, and then I came to France. I learned English and French. My life changed.
Sometimes we don't reach our goal, sometimes we have to overcome problems to reach our goal. We sometimes change our goal as well.
Have a look at some of our visual interpretations too:
