Let Me Sit

Let me sit down here upon this rock and bow my head. Feasting my eyes upon the world below, contemplating it's fate. I see nothing that I would not change and yet am pained as I must. I do not want to do this thing. It all seems so perfect to me, but here it is... It must be. I cry my tears of anguish and pain and watch it splash away at the world below. It moves the caverns and carves the hills, shapes the valleys and covers the world. Oceans are formed and rivers and lakes... people come and go. As I watch I see. I am proud, they are free. And then I look up to see... YOU up there are watching me and rain falls gently down.
