I’m probably the only thing on this

Land that’s the least enchanting

And I also know that I won’t be

Able to change a thing

If that’s proved to be the truth

I’m a stone but I’ve got a heart that

Lives deep inside me

I know that I’ll break myself someday

Into tiny bits of unworthy crystals

And submerge underwater

But the river that flows beside me

Tells me that there’s life

Somewhere out there and asks me

To go with it on a journey

That never ends

I don’t want to be carried away for

I refuse to move on

And I choose to stay here for

This is my place where

I’m supposed to be

I still hope that I’d stay strong

On the shore,

Unseen and untouched.

      2. Oh, that’s okay. It’s really alright if you commit mistakes. We all make mistakes. There are no stupid mistakes, in general. I’m almost a blind person if I don’t wear glasses or contact lenses. I’m sorry if I sounded harsh.
        Thank you.

      3. Oh gosh, no you did not sound harsh at all. Wow. You have bad eyesight too. I understand. It’s hard. I have really appreciated you reading my poetry. I will read more of yours too. You are a really good poet. Smiles.

  1. Please don’t ever believe you are “tiny bits of unworthy crystals”! Life does harden us at times but stepping out of our comfort zone can bring us untold happiness too sometimes. May you have the courage to do so, Pavan.
