Granite Heart



GRANITE HEART



What’s our heart made of?



Tender flesh soft and gentle,

Feels the pain that’s all around,

Cries at hurts, wrongs and injustice,

Bleeds with every tortured soul.



Or slowly hardened by life’s cruelty,

Fatigued by constant repeated ills,

To the point it beats no longer

And turns to granite cold and still.

  3. Hi Victor! That second heart must be what the bible talks about as the 'stony heart'. Boy, I hope my heart doesn't ever get to that, but I'm sure it has at times. Remembering the way were were created really helps in those times. I was born with a tender heart, not one of granite.

    Happy New Year to you my friend! May this be a year of delight, and new insights to write about,
    Ceil

      Yes, sadly, there are many stony hearts these days.
