The Sound of Success

Successes, yes, acknowledge them.

But notice how much applause you need for them.

 

Maybe you only need your own,

clapping hands.

Not the

clap,

clap

clap, clap

clap, clap, clap,

clap, clap, clap, claps

of hundreds in unison.

Because that noise,

eventually

drowns

the truth

of what

your heart beats

for.

Grudge Stone

It’s been many years,

hand-1838345_1280and it kept getting bigger,

and heavier,

that grudge,

that stone,

that grudge stone.

It feels like it won’t

budge,

that grudge stone.

Till one day,

you decide to rid

yourself of it.

So, you manage to budge

that grudge-

stone.

Do you judge your

grudge

stone,

or

toss into

a

river

Or,

do you hurl

it,
s h a t t e r i n g

that glass house you live in?

What happened when you budged

that grudge, that stone,

that grudge stone?
