There’s a stone in your shoe!
You smile but half smile,
You walk, but feel pain.
You try to dance, but can’t!
You try to sing, but stammer!
You try to shake it out,
But that tiny little stone remains.
A never ending reminder
That you will never dance with all you heart,
Or laugh with all you soul,
Or sing without your stammer.
You will never relax in conversation
‘Til you choose to physically remove that stone!
When then and only then...
Could you dance with all your heart,
Laugh with all your soul,
And sing without your stammer.
With only the distant memory of your discomforting pain.
Only an uncomfortable memory
From which you can finally find your present peace and comfort.
