Strength

The sparkling stream speaks so swift;

So strong;

And,

With great persistence,

It strikes the shield securing my soul,

Stealing slabs of my spirit with each blow.

It tells me to follow:

Follow the current;

Comply with the course we settled for you.

—But I’m a stubborn stone.

I stay put.

I listen to what’s left of my spirit.

And,

I take it.

‘cause I hear the crashing up ahead.

    1. Thank you very much! That line, and the first line, were the only ones I knew. It was fun putting the middle together.
      I really appreciate you saying this. I admire the hard work you put into your writing, and art in general. It shows.

      I noticed you’re a social worker. My father was a social worker for many years. I get a lot of my people skills from him. Have a great day.
