Pebbles & Stones - Poem by Philo Yan

Pebbles and stones,

Of different tones.

Oval or Round.

Black or Brown.

Smooth or rough

Oddly enough,

People collect

pebbles and stones.

They like to select

the smooth and round.

They like to select,

if it's shiny and brown.

Do you like pebbles too?

Or stones in black and blue?

On reflection, our lives are like pebbles and stones. Picking and choosing the right stones will shape our future.

By choosing the shiny ones, it represents happiness.
By choosing the black ones, the opposite is true.

By choosing the black and blue stone, now that is a rare one because it represents whatever your heart's desire.
