Forces of Nature

Standard

Do your best to tear me down—

But you won’t, because you see

I am an ancient oak tree

And you can’t uproot me.

 

Hound my steps and you will come home

Empty handed, ‘cause you see

I am a mountain lion

And you’ll never find me.

 

Force me through your channels—

I’ll erode them, you will see

I am a mighty river

And you’ll never change me.

 

Try to lure me to your trap and

I’ll escape, because you see

I am a wild coyote

And you’ll never fool me.

 

Spread your net to catch my feathers

Spread in flight and you will see

I am a golden eagle

And you’ll never cage me.

 

Hold my head under the water—

I’ll survive, because you see

I am a river otter

And you’ll never drown me.

 

Do your utmost to destroy me

It won’t work, because you see

I have the heart of a mountain

And you’ll never crush me.
