Praise

How can I praise your stability
in the midst of high anxiety
when the only truth to frame
is that you won't leave me alone
when despite my repeated warnings
of stormy seas and high winds
you row out determined
to keep the world together
when the only care
despite the lashing rain of tears
is that we remain forever
stubborn as a rock they say
stubborn as a rock I grin
the grey cliff withstands the stormy sea
until it falls into its arms
