Rupen Khajag: Chip Away

Chip away
At the stone that is life
And see what may lie
At the core,
Deep inside.
See what may come,
What may be
Once you are done
Scraping away
Scratching the surface.
Be the first
To touch your creation
To see the secrets
Stuck inside
All this time.

It is yours.
It is you.

You are a memory
Etched in stone.

Rupen Khajag, 2018
