Bring it forth, they said
Let it flow, they said
I can't
I don't destroy
I want to create.
But if I let go...
I will destroy

I hate
I fear
But I can't let it go
But slowly
Slow as molasses
Slow as the mountains
Slow as the oceans
Washing away the shore

For if I let it go
Too quickly
A tidal wave
A mudslide
An avalanche
A forest fire

I am strong
Too strong
To let go
I can't rest
I can't weep

But I won't regret
Nor will I forget
