i hate walking on rocks with my bare feet

rocks hurt

they poke
they prod

rocks tear

tender skin
revealing tissue, muscle
life

my skin is shredded
by precancerous polyps
by bear’s stutter
by the word WAIT

rocks make me
jump skip leap
from fear to fear to fear
EACH TIME
landing on a jagged edge

i hate rocks

i beg for relief
i beg for comfort
i beg God

STANDING FIRM

on the rocks
i wait for HIM
