Hewn from a Rock

MIRANDA WONG

SOFT SIDE

A stone, alone

No purpose, no spark

Once paired or joined

Strength, purpose intact

Its hard side shaved away

By mighty currents of water

Cut, shattered by metal blades

Or crushed to granular matter

Creative keen eyes reveal

The soft side in stones

Objects living or motionless

Their purpose bountiful

In somber times, human

Perspective is amiss

Though end goals not in sight

Steps hasten your reach

Mind your soft side, rock hard or not

There’s courage in being vulnerable

When you can bend, your

Heart and will still strong as ever
