Siege

broken-heart-940

It’s a siege
Yet another one
They pummel and hammer
on and on at the walls
Walls built around our hearts
To shield us from the hurt
Suffered in times past

They pound the gates
Force with battering rams
Not belligerent but pleading
Entreating to get in
Assuring with pleas of restoration
To a place worn and beaten
Hardened by cynicism and scepticism

They intensify with caterpults
Like the Greeks did with Troy
Only these aren’t stones or rocks
But words and actions
Targeted at softening resolve
Opening gates and walls
Left high up for so long

So we yield and soften
Pull down our walls
Embracing hope
that we wouldn’t have to rebuild
Hoping that this isn’t just another invasion…
an invasion of the heart.
