I am dirt...

Life is a river 
I'm a stone among millions...
drifting
sliding along
in the rush
I go where it takes me
through the meadows
into the jungle
over the mountains 
diving underground
hurling down a fall 
powerless and passive
in the mercy of the mighty river
grinding me incessantly
rounding my edges
surrendering my cast 
making me obey
more and more
I become a pebble
same as all the rest
until I become a grain of sand 
until I turn to dirt
I am dirt
suspended
eternally
in the bottom of the sea.
