someone has to be the first.

someone bends down, looks

for a stone

takes aim, throws.

let it not be me.


let me not be the one

who chooses this for a name.

— choice

choice is a powerful force.

someone has to be the first to pick up that stone.

someone chooses in that moment to bend down low, not look, not see the other, find the perfect stone to throw.

choose kindness instead.
