Location: Bronx zoo, Bronx, NY.
I’ve been here for a long time. I have heard, seen and felt many things, and I have had the time to think about how much I would like to have life and not be a “Fake Rock” as everyone calls me. Many think that my falsehood has taken away my feelings. Well actually, I’m not so false, since I was made by the human hand, but still I could swear that I feel more than many. I feel the weight of the sea lions, the sunlight, also I feel the ridicule of my friends. All those thoughts make me wonder what would be if I were not here? If they really need me? I was thinking until I decided to ask to Marine the sea lion, and she makes me realized that this is my home where I belong. Now all is well and I do not accept the joks of the others rocks because now I understood that I was designed with this function, and that makes me perfect.
