Crying Souls on Rigid Pews Smiling

Dissimulation
oozes from the church pews
Hurting and lost people
disguise their pain
for fear of the discrimination
of others

Hard benches
of rigid judgment
frighten them
inside of themselves

Running for cover
They are left with
the shame and bitterness
that can only stand
to fester and eat away
at any morsel of peace
they had

Searching into
the hollowed eyes
she hears their cries
deep within their souls
Yet she's met with
a disturbing silence
that leaves her cold

She longs to demolish
the hardened pews
the plastic smiles
the judging spirits
that cause God's people
to lock the doors within
and suffer a lonely
and stifling death
of spirit

She prays God will
break the barriers
that have been layed
brick by brick
and shatter the hypocrisy
of churches gone cold

Bulls eye! Yeshua healed my hurting heart, but it wasn't in a "church" service straining to praise a god of emotion--- it was in my own home while I lay on the floor on my face!
