pierced

And a sword will pierce your soul too. ~Luke 2:35

there is something beautiful
about the sword-pierced soul
a necessity for growth in grace
simeon knew it all too well
he had been around the block a time or two
and therefore saw with a clearer eye

he knew that somehow
through our wounds
a kindness enters in
something that wasn't in existence before
enters the bloodstream
and softens the heart

something is opened up within us
and compassion is born
in a brand new way
a care has taken up residence inside
one that changes our perspective
moving us from i to we
