Support

April17

Everytime I need a rock
solid and dependable beneath me…

You set yourself up as a wall,
fixed and immovable, nearby me.

Rocks are foundations
on which we build ourselves.
Walls keep us out or in.
They separate and divide.

Rocks are spirit filled,
hewn from nature,
slow to form.

Walls are man-made,
erected from rocks that have been shattered
and carried away from where they grew.

I stand on the rock,
sure of foot and free to look out on the landscape before me
taking a step away when I am ready to be on my own.

I stand against the wall,
with my back to the firing squad
or facing it, unable to pass through, to move forward.

Support isn’t made of walls.
Support is built on rock.
