The dance of the stream surprises you.
Water flows where you least expect it,
this is what we are given.
The presence of the rocks intimidates you.
The rocks are so enormous they hide,
the rocks are alone.
My passionate efforts go unnoted.
I care because I want to have a life.
The water passes over me,
rocks get submerged by waves,
they keep going
The rocks, helpless, sit
I am enormous
I am alone
