At The Core Of Me...

I looked down and saw myself as I truly am. Not faux, nor finished, nor heirloom though I'd have everyone pretend. I am someone whos quite small-minded with a tongue like a dagger and heart of stone. My legs, who I've claimed were faithful, have been fond of traps and called them their home. My hands, though posed in piety, have struck out with talented blows. So there at my core with the smell of decay. I've made space for beginning, for more. There is a seed thats taken root within my heart of stone and through that rock it's growing still to break apart it's home. A crack begins and I rejoice 'cause life is growing there. Oh hope for me 'cause now I know that I've been made for more!

Ecclesiastes 3:11 "He has planted eternity in the human heart..."
