What Lies Beneath The Rock

“What lies beneath the rock?

Is it my fate?

A noble death?

Or the grasp on eternity?

Doubt or certainty?

What lies beneath the rock?

A beaten path? Or dead end?

A door, but who will I let in?

What truths rest in the gravel?

What bitterness will direct change?

What sweet love will be gained?

What is this rock?

Why does it cover an unknown?

Why create mystery that provokes my curiosity?

I am peaked, so in my passion I reach and grab the rock.

I look anxiously underneath,

only to reveal

another rock.” – Ricardo Hanley Jr.
