I really like this.
_I've always considered myself a "contrary," against the flow. _No matter what we do, the river continues; the river, a metaphor of nature's whole.

it has so many potential meanings from frustration
to hope to power and more...

Hmmm... this is the only haiku, of yours, that skirts cliche. I think I've seen the combination of "river" and "run" too many times.

I like it though it is on the verge of aphorism, reminded me of a saying of Confucius when he stood by the river:

“Time goes on and on like the flowing water in the river, never ceasing day or night!”
