This post will go on record as my first attempt to share some original poetry inspired by my own reflections on some texts that mean a lot to me.

Here’s my first, entitled – “A Broken Wall.”



BrokenWallSmA Broken Wall

by Kenny Burchard

Ecclesiastes 10:8b
“…whoever breaks through a wall,
will be bitten by a serpent.”

A broken wall does feebly stand;
Which break was made by my own hand.

A careless act without a view;
Of foes and fiends who could march through.

The wall, a life that lacks the care;
Which leaves the city weak and bare.

Dark rivals stand and watch the gate;
Where once a sentry, pure, did wait.

Now does that plundered city stand;
Where once might have been a great man.
