Cynical

​How does a rock become soft?

It becomes broken apart;

sand.

I am like that,

a cynical rock

that found myself in the path of

dynamite. 

I am in pieces,

and so much softer 

than I ever dreamed of being.

I feel so much more whole, 

than before I was broken. 

 

……….

 
I just realized after writing this how inspired I am by Rumi. I am just a loving and curious student of his. 

“Very little grows on jagged rock. Be ground. Be crumbled, so wildflowers will come up where you are.”

Rumi
