Beautiful Disaster

From Boulders to Sand

They used to be so strong
Proud boulders
Upon the shore
But the constant crash
Of raging waters
Up against their
Smoothed surface
Slowly began to chip away
And their smooth surface
Was reduced to rough edges
and jagged corners
But the waters continued
Attacking them
Breaking them down
Slowly from boulders
The become stones
And from stones
Grains of sand
Sand that once stood
As a great boulder
To hold back the raging waters
Now lays helplessly
As the water washes over it
Shifting it from one shore
To another
So tired
So broken
And all but completely worn away.
