The Little Stone
by Marjorie Anne Reagan
Inspired by Philip De Pinto
The little stone was used to being lorded over
and taunted by the big stone contantly living in his shadow
wishing that one day he might be as large
Then one day Goliath came and picked up the little stone
leaving the big stone alone and afraid of his own shadow,
and making the little stone feel as though he could do anything.
Never needing to Lord over anyone or anything,
after watching the big stone,
and the giant make such fools of themselves.
Being a peace loving
happy and strong stone,
he decided to continue in this spirit,
to teach all the other Davids to make sling shots
and teach all the other little stones, fat stones, big stones
skinny stones and stones of all colors know exactly how much
power they had within themselves.
Showing them everyday how to sleigh thier own giants. So none of them
ever had to quiver in the fear of anyones shadow again.
Author's Note: Philip if you find this offensive in any way I will take it down.
