{Poetry Corner} Ready, Steady, Safe



I am a rock --
Steady, Constant, Reliable,
A foundation to sit on.

Stable, Enduring, Set,
Yet I can be moved.
Hard, Firm, Solid,
Yet I can yield.

Throw me, Beat me,
Cast me in flames...
I endure your torment.

Remaining Steady
To hold your weight.
Safe, Reliable, Secure,
Able to bear your burden.

I cast no judgment,
I speak to no others,
yet I absorb your pain.

Certain, Constant, Steadfast,
Lean on me and rest --
Then go face the world again.
