Pride is a free verse
It has some rhythm to it
There is imagery used
There is also personification
It's a metaphor
By Dahlia Ravikovitch
I tell you, even rocks crack,
and not because of age.
For years they lie on their backs
in the heat and cold,
so many years,
it almost seems peaceful.
They don't move, so the cracks stay hidden.
A kinda of pride.
Years pass over them, waiting.
Whoever is going to shatter them
hasn't come yet.
And so moss flourishes, the seaweed
whips around,
the sea pushes through and rolls back
the rocks seem motionless.
Till a little seal comes to rub against them,
comes and goes away
And suddenly the rock has an open wound.
I told you, when rocks break, it happens by surprise.
And people too.
"So the moss flourishes, the seaweed whips around, the sea pushes through and rolls back"

Rock is a metaphor for a mentally strong person. They don't let things bother them.

It's comparing a rock to a person. Just like a rock a person can crack, and have internal damage. No matter how strong you may be, you can still be hurt.
The past is the past
if good or bad, it wont forgotten.
Some people can't forget it though.
It sits inside them,
tearing them apart.
No matter how strong a person they are
It will not go away
It keeps eating them away,
no matter how hard they try to forget.
They are both free verses
Both have imagery
Both have metaphors
Both deal with being a strong emotional person
The past
