The Geologist & the Volcano

Pressure builds until eruption

A process that is only natural

My lava flow pushes you far away from me

I’m an island on my own

A rock in the middle of the ocean

I watch myself change as the waves give and take from my shores

You wait as I cool and settle

You still admire me from afar

A volcano only sees itself as devastating

But it’s what the geologist’s heart beats for
