Soft Is The Way To Describe You - Poem by Adam Gebreselassie

Soft is the way to describe you,
You can beat scissors,
But not paper.

You’re so big that you’re everywhere,
You are the hardest,
No one can take you on.

You’re the rock,
You wrestle people,
But you seem to be standing still,
And win without moving.

You are as quiet as a mouse,
You break but, don’t bounce.
