Heart or Stone

I submitted a written application in triplicate
with no reply forthcoming
meeting naught but obstinacy & rejection on your part

I was much younger then, barely an adult
not knowing what life is all about
taking on the role as the wandering poet

I stood silent, a reluctant traveler for many a year
always missing out on the grand adventure
I had seen too much, begging for the suffering’s end
