Stones

How hard it is to chip away

At  stones so tightly held

Ancient hurt and anger

Wrapped around them

Like a glove.

 

Don’t hurt yourself

I want to say.

Lashing out at others

Only rips your gloves apart

The sharp edges of your pain

Will cut you deeper

Than you know.

 

Remove your gloves

Don’t try to fight

Let life’s waters flow

Free and warm and gentle

Erosion will do the work.
