A Stone Heart

Forged in a world of pain

Hardened by life

Driven by greed and gain

And so he learned

Never to be hurt again

 

Stoic and strong in many ways

But there were some times

Reflecting on some faded days

When it was not so

Bending a knee he often prays

 

Simple things he wants to feel

The joy of silence

To see what is truly real

Finally understood

There was nothing to heal

 

Falling upwards a heart will open

Time negates all wounds

The sheer falsity he was fed upon

Worries that never were

Truth is found in a kiss and a song
