I am the stone man

Bullets ricochet

All around me

I am impervious

To bullet wounds

My heart no

Longer pumps

Blood

Fragments of

Stone

Circulate throughout

My body

Transforming me

Into a man of stone

Rain, wind, the sun

Constantly beating me

Down

Wearing me

Down

I will endure

After all

My heart

Is made

Of stone

 

The sun burns

The wind pushes

Trying to stop

My forward

Progress

The rain

Makes puddles

Around my feet

Trying to

Suck me

In

Each footstep     

A momentous fight

Against

Gravity

Lasers flash

All around me

No worries

They only chip

And leave

Pockmarks

Fragments of stone

Have solidified

The pressure

Rocks to diamonds

Lasers create

Prisms of

Infrared and ultraviolet

Rays of light

I am stone

Transforming
