Pastor Seth – Poems and Musings

Hard Hearts

Eyes that will not see,

Ears that will not hear.

“I see what I want to see.

And hear what I want to hear.”


It’s all too true of mankind.

We’re too often, locked in one’s mind,

“I’ve already made up my mind!

Faith? Why I’d rather fly blind!”


Are “the open-minded”

Even open

To a change of mind?


The heart, encased in steel,

Words seem oh so weak.

To a hard heart can words appeal?

Or make a proud heart, meek?


My words flying like birds

Will they be empty words?

Merely a “string of words?”

Or miraculously, watchwords?!


(Matthew 13:15)
