This Igneous Life


 The hard time spent chained to stone
taught me patience.

Through years of lonely communion
with stone I learned listening.

When stone finally weathered and broke
I knelt down on its bones and wept.

    The harsh reality of trying to deal with virtues, that don't come easy to us.
