The Broken

A home begins with dreams-

Each room pulled together at the seams.

Stitched with love and sacrifice-

Snuggled together no matter the price.

Sometimes fear and anger strike-

Sometimes laughter and joy the like.

One day chaos comes to reign-

The choice is to cast it out or stay the same.

In shambles you may find your heart-

As the tears stream for having to part.

Yet God will heal that broken heart-

And plant those roots in a fresher start.

Be a testimony to His healing-

And decline that chaos from his stealing.

Heart is the August prompt for writing resources poetry.
