Stone on my heart


On my heart, I placed a stone

Controlling my sorrow, I stood alone

Like champagne in a bottle

I subjected myself to a throttle

Like the tight reins that bridle a horse

I suppressed myself with immense force

I withdrew from the throng for a season

To be free from derision

I stayed aloof to many that were dear

A feeling of emptiness drew near

Everyday, I clung to my Savior

Uttering a fervent prayer

To give me strength to reform

And be resilient in the storm

But, somehow I kept falling short

To impulsivity, I would resort

I repented of my mistakes

Tears made me look like soggy cornflakes

Perhaps, patience had left him

His fury made my countenance grim

But, to my surprise, he became sweet

Answered prayer was sure a treat!
