fortress of love

Posted on: February 21, 2013

 

the fortress of love

is a fort with no walls

 
yet the fortress of love

is the strongest of all

 
walls tense with anger,

or frozen by fear

 
need lots of upkeep

for days, months and years

 
cement of sadness

and low self-esteem

 
mortar of misery

mixed with crushed dreams

 
better to let

such defenses dissolve

 
by leasing the land

of our hearts to God’s love

 
there won’t be a place

more secure on this earth

 
for the fortress of love

comes with grace and self-worth

 
with wide open spaces

no shadows can hide

 

they must all surrender

or say their good-byes

 
yes the fortress of love

is the strongest of all

 
and free for the sharing

for me and for y’all
