When a Dam Breaks

Impounded long without relief,
     water will, over time, find a way
          through any dam no matter how
Stolid the blockade.

It begins with a seeping drip drip,
     then a trickle of drips to a steady
          stream, building up to a pour, before
All at once a flood.

When an old dam finally breaks,
     when thick walls finally give way,
          the slow erosion is unseen, but the
World sees the fall.

The softening of a hardened heart
     is a lot like the collapsing of a dam,
          piece by piece, then more do tumble
When God's love breaks through.

Ezekiel 36:26
