I am a Rock

I am a Rock

I am a rock

Strong and resiliant, cool and still, stoic and uncaring to the flow of time

Life around me may whither and shift

But still I remain, a rock

One day I will be a pebble

Small and maluable, weak and insignificant

Wherever the wind or river may flow, I will be carried

Kicked and tossed, broken down by the elements all around

Then I will be a grain of sand

Unnoticed below your feet as you run and play

While to you I may only seem a miniscule grain of sand

In my mind I will always remember

I was a rock
