Stone

Short-tailed-Albatross-FlyingThe stone you carry may be heavy

Its jagged edges might rub your heart raw

But, remember please

It isn’t an albatross

It isn’t tied around your neck

There are no chains around your ankles

Linking you to that stone for all eternity

Put it down

Let it go

Roll it away

Downhill is just fine

And if it is an albatross

Ask it to teach you

How to fly
