Man - Poem by Autumn Renee

Where doth thou loyalties lie?
-Within the sand or within my hand?
For sand doth not command thee,
Only I, can teach thee
Stand tall against the stone on which you stand
Do not thou quiver or fall within
For thy rock may strengthen-or crumble,
But all decides upon thy loyalty
Through sand, thy feet shall sink-and Nature?
Be unheartly toward all that stand upon it.
Let not such weary tolls take you easy
For easy shall crumble just as soon be built.
\Rock be not sturdy either, for water forms,
Like ice, In its faults and t’is crumbled from within
Therefore be not like the sand, nor the rock,
For both destroy themselves
Sand from outside forces and rock from within its flaws.
Compare yourself not to any part that has matter.
For everything in nature has fault.
Compare and compare thyself to thee alone,
For thee can only build a man,
Not rock nor sand,
But MAN.
