A Hardened Heart
by lynn gipson  
9/04/2012 / Poetry

A hardened heart does not throb, it beats
It does not rejoice, but only grieves
It does not speak, but rather groans
It does not melt, but turns to stone

A hardened heart can't recognize pain
Nothing to lose and nothing to gain
It walls itself off from love and grace
Empathy disappears without a trace

A hardened heart feels no compassion
None of the reasons for which God fashioned
It pulses with blood that soon runs cold
Filled with loathing and hatred untold

A hardened heart will tremor alone
No sense of mercy will ever be owned
No time or place for God to come in
Just a brick house filled with sin

A hardened heart is a bitter one
Preferring the darkness to the sun
In which to hide it's ugliness
From the One who loves it best

A hardened heart will lose it's life
To burdens carried by it's own strife
Finding out late all it has cost
By not finding God before all is lost

I am a 61 year cancer survivor just recently become a writer. I write short stories, articles and poems of Christian or Spritual nature.

You summed it up in those telling lines. Sin really is so destructive! A person will reject God for so long until they become just an empty shell. Praise be to God for His abounding love, mercy and grace!. May our prayers always be for those who have hardened their hearts to the Savior's amazing grace, that they would find the place of brokenness that would set them free in Christ Jesus! I love your poetry! Wendy
