The Proud Rock And The Ocean

Once there was a Rock.

And the rock lived on top of a high cliff, overlooking the ocean.

He was a Great Rock.

The Rock was Big.
The Rock was Bold.
The Rock was Beautiful.

The rock saw animals come, and go.
The rock saw seeds grow into mighty trees.
The rock saw children play, grow, and leave.

I am Powerful.
I never change.
I never age.

A breeze heard the rock.
And the breeze was sad.

The breeze told the wind.
And the wind was sad.

The wind told the storm.
And the storm was mad.

The storm stirred up a hurricane.
And threw the rock into the ocean.

And the Rock was Angry.
The rock said, “That’s is not fair! Why me?”

The wave heard the rock, and smiled.

And everyday, the wave washed the rock.
Every time the wave washed the rock,
The wave ever so gently smoothed the rock… just a little bit.

A long time went by.

And the wave washed the anger out of the rock.
And the wave washed the rock into a stone.

And the stone was sad.
The stone said, “It’s not fair. Why me?”

The wave heard the stone, and smiled.

And the wave washed the stone.

A long time went by.

And the wave washed the sadness out of the stone.
And the wave washed the stone into a pebble.

And the pebble felt empty.
And the pebble said, “It’s not fair. Why me?”

The wave heard the pebble, and smiled.

And the wave washed the pebble.

A long time went by.

And the wave washed the emptiness out of the pebble.
And the wave washed the pebble into a grain of sand.

And the grain of sand felt peace.
And the grain of sand said, “I am nothing.”

The wave heard the grain of sand, and smiled.

And the wave washed the grain of sand.

A long time went by.

And the wave washed on the grain of sand for one last time.
And the rock was no more.

And the rock became part of the sea.
