With each cruel word

I placed another brick.

With every demeaning moniker

The wall grew taller and thicker.

My fragile heart shuddered.

With every snobbish look

The mortar grew stronger.

No one dared break through.

Then the creator of that precious wounded heart

Led me to His children,

His hands and feet.

 

With kind words

With true love

They chipped away at the vast wall.

Slowly the mortar crumbled.

Bit by bit the bricks were removed.

My tender heart grew braver.

God’s arms surrounded me.

His body held me,

And counted me among them.

We remove the rubble of the wall

together
