You saw me when I was a piece of stone Weathered from the land, wind, and mighty seas You'd known me as a strong rock from before Who could silence the sands, knock over trees. You thought I'd remain part of the gravel Living forever in a weak disguise A thing to be coddled, controlled and thrown Into paths you had seen, that you'd advise. What if I wanted to rise from the ground? With cement and water I'd make concrete I'd become a tall building, then I'd know That I didn't need you to feel complete. But I won't forget the role you once played Wounding so I fell to my knees in pain We didn't foresee that I'd grow from the dead To never be broken by you again.
