First of all, his writing reminds me of Emily Dickinson, because he is talking about his own death. He is thinking about the world and the basic questions of what is evil and what is good, about what is false and what is true. I think the 'river' represents the poeple with who he was flowing for all his life and whose opinion of what is true and what is false he adapted all life, before he finally started thinking.
