The Curse of the CRUSH

The excruciating pain of the crush
never once defeated the spirit
any more than any such pain caused
a boulder to become a pile of gravels.

Only the continual, steadfast assault
of the aggressor,
determined
to wreak destruction on
that which the solid rock once was,

Mercilessly
assailing its strength –

Beat
after
resounding
Beat

POUNDING
within the vulnerable crevices of its being –

Eventually wearing it down,
convincing this broken stone that it will
no longer possess any greater value than
its pulverized parts

-Divided-
now keeping it from being WHOLE.

If only it could
comprehend
the use of its parts
as a Stronger Foundation
to the wholeness of
Something once more

Made NEW.
