Hard As Stone - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

the setback with
this racial thing
is too many men try
to have a hand in it

and most try to get
the upper hand

it always feels nice
to be at the side
that makes you feel
good though not
necessarily right

a stone can be used
for so many metaphors
like a character solid
as a stone or
a head cold and
unfeeling as a stone

many choose to be the latter

if we have more men with
characters hard and beautiful
as stones, diamonds, rubies
