I'm Just a Rock

I'm Just a Rock

A Poem by Kristin

Pick me up
Throw me down
Watch me break in little pieces
Watch me blowup 
And move from town to town
My importance in size decreases
I’m a rock to keep you there
Something simple to keep you sane
But easily forgotten
I stay to keep from your despair
But can bother you as much as a stain
Throw me in water to see how many ripples you could have gotten
Im just a rock
Nothing important
With not much of a function
Trampled by everyone who takes a walk
Some say its inadvertent
I hope you all feel a certain compunction

The fact that you relate yourself to a rock is creative, it can be a peaceful method of releasing emotions, calming some forms of stress even; but it is often overlooked as a useless item. Great job, and the ending was nice.

Great job with the rock theme, amazing, lovely imagery! You may (if you wish) want to work on the amount of syllables per line to help a little with the flow. I love your use of vocabulary, awesome poem. ;)
