Words once ran through my mind like a river
falling from the rains of Heaven
carving canyons of hope and love in their wake
washing away the layers of regret
and replenishing the soils of faith
so that providence may grow.
Now the river is dammed by anger and resentment
the bricks of the dam cemented with frustration
and teeming with rage-full bricks the dam stands firm
but every dam must burst as the waters build up behind it
and the words will flow freely once more.
Yet the words are still standing at the brink
slowly trickling over the side
with only the promise of what is to come
but such promise is sweet.
