Tearing Down the Wall

It must come down.
It’s too big to stay up.
It’s too complex to dynamite.
It must come down.

Bit by bit
Pull out a brick of unforgiveness
Sand the mortar of bitterness
Bit by bit

Slowly working
Cut the vines of pride
Prune the branches of prejudice
Slowly working

Welling up
Fill the wounds with encouragement
Level the unevenness of scars with self-discipline
Welling up

Barely moving
Some days the work never ends
Some days the toil never starts
Barely moving

Future glory
Open ground diligently gained by love and discipline
Level heart welling with hope and integrity
Future glory
