Giving up pie for lent

What are we reduced to
when we do not want to hear
what another voice is telling us

Who are we become if
we could tear down others without cause
greater than boredom

Our hearts
are malleable and weather-proof
however they might melt under fire

Though no one can see the bruises
of everyday pummeling
from jabs of our closest
and most relied upon

    1. I was thinking about how the things we do like lent or other rituals don’t mean anything if we are not loving to each other…like in I Corinthians 13.
      Seems like we’ve all got picked up some shrapnel since the election….
