Thoughts and Words

"For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.Eat and drink!he says to you, But his heart is not with you." (Proverbs 23:7)


Thoughts that were too often
Expressed by me through words
Were filled with wrong intentions
Which You too often heard.

But locked within my mind
Are words that I regret
Of many spoken thoughts
I wish I had repressed.

You also shared Your thoughts
Expressed to me through love
Thoughts which soared in flight
Upon the wings of doves.

Your crafted words I heard
Like sculpted works of art
Words which melted armor
To free my prisoned heart.
