I am the Rock

The bluff and I

Sitting with a friend, on a bluff overlooking the ocean

Restless waves roar into the beach

slamming into the large rocks that sit without moving over decades

Looking at me I can see the sadness in her big blue eyes

“I am the rock” she states as a matter of fact

“I stand motionless and the water slams into me

crashes all around me and over me

and still I don’t move, I don’t budge.”

Understanding her pain her acceptance of herself

A rock is what she may be.

One of solidarity and strength

Hard and unrelenting. 

She will move for no one or nothing.

She is a force from which you must move around.

She is the Earth

I reply, “I am the water.  I speed towards things with no care

I am in constant movement.

I will slow down for nothing, not even you.

I will stay my coarse and slam into you

Like a speeding train that hits a car left on the tracks

I will slice through you and never look back.”

She  sigh’s, “I wish I was the water”.

As I sometimes wish I was the rock.

We both stare longingly at the vast sea and wonder

Could that ever be?
