By Deoye Falade
It’s a siegeYet another oneThey pummel and hammeron and on at the wallsWalls built around our heartsTo shield us from the hurtSuffered in times past
They pound the gatesForce with battering ramsNot belligerent but pleadingEntreating to get inAssuring with pleas of restorationTo a place worn and beatenHardened by cynicism and scepticism
They intensify with caterpultsLike the Greeks did with TroyOnly these aren’t stones or rocksBut words and actionsTargeted at softening resolveOpening gates and wallsLeft high up for so long
So we yield and softenPull down our wallsEmbracing hopethat we wouldn’t have to rebuildHoping that this isn’t just another invasion…an invasion of the heart.
