What once was
Age Group: Adult
I tumble down the rushing river. I am a lone rock dragging and grinding against the river bed, ever changing in direction. I am pushed and turned and churned and rushed. The water envelops me. It surges on faster and faster and louder it gets. A eerie silence and stillness overcomes me for a moment and then I fall. I fall fast and hard and then a splash, I am forced down towards the bottom, water surging all around me. I come up for awhile almost close enough to see the light but get dragged back into the night. I can not break free of this cycle. I bounce and break and grind some more. I notice a difference about the way I feel, as I change I break free. I am traveling down the river again but not as fast I once was. A calmer more peaceful way. Instead of tumbling down a rough bed I am gliding on a bed of sand. I am being polished and refined. I come to a stop on a bank, sun glistening on my shiny new face. A tiny hand picks me up with such delight. I am not the ugly old rock I once was. I am a new gemstone shining brightly for all to see.
