Like a statue

No longer am I rooted like a tree

I’m like a statue standing in a bog

Of all secure connections I am free

My only soulmate is a silent frog

The wind may blow me over then you’ll see.

I’ll sink into the earth like some old log.

I’m well acquainted with adversity.

Lost in this wet earth, my grave is dug

Eaten up by worms and myriad bugs

But not tossed out and eaten by the dogs

I dwell inside this heart still ruled by love

Abandoned by my friends and family

An unencripted gravestone floats to sea.
