The Wall

It strikes like lightning.
And then you feel the thickening pain rising from your chest to your throat.
You start to breathe a little faster, you try to fight it -
you try to hold back, until you can hardly breathe anymore.

Without blinking, your tears start to fall.

You try catching the pace of your heart,
and every breath becomes a struggle.

Once they collide -
your tears endlessly fall, you close your eyes,
hoping that your mind could hear the faintest cry of your heart,
so you could still be saved.

But here you are...
ridiculously laughing at yourself,
for being too fragile.

Build that wall higher. 
Make it thicker. 
Make it harder. 
Make it unbreakable. . .

But it's too late.
What it should have kept safe and unscathed,
crumbled into dust

Hey, I'd love to know your thoughts :)

The Wonder Human

To be human has its complexities and frailties. It almost feels natural to succumb to life's struggles and disarray, that we tend to forget how God has made us to be filled with wonder. . . and this blog aims to create vivid reminders of what we should never lose, what we should continually celebrate, what we should seek, in every musing, experience, milestone, chapter, and blessing. More about me HERE


Psalms 139:14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Job 5:9 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.

Psalm 71:17 Since my youth, God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.
