Contemplation Of Stone - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

contemplating upon a
stone
does not change it

it cannot soften

it is
a stone and will be a stone
forever
it does not break
it breaks
what it hits

it is i
who will change
not the stone

i am
stone-like now
my eyes are like
stones
my body and my mind
turn into stone
hard, monotonous,
silent,
in isolation
ironic
deprived of
emotions

my heart shall not change
it is stone
from the very beginning
stripped
of its
humanity
