Somewhere deep, in dark abyss
amidst the cold and emptiness
pressed against the belly of this earth
Standing, all alone and yet
rooted, pressing strong against
the currents cruel and unforgiving push
and all the ocean, let it rage
and furies of the seas engage
let them carry on as they may
let them clench and throw their fists
no matter how they may insist
they can never ever, ever make him sway…
This is a poem I composed to encourage a dear friend of mine.
When the world is against you, stand your ground.
