This Old House

RESTORATION

Old paper hid the
Cracks and kept the walls
From crumbling down,
It peeled off with the
Slightest tug.
Never made a sound.

Sometimes the healing
Can’t begin until
The walls are bare.
Expose what’s hiding
Underneath;
Show yourself what’s there.

The house is old, but
Solid still; no need
To knock it down.
The walls are worn, though
Worth the work.
Keep them holding strong.

Assess the damage,
Contemplate your past,
Then clean those wounds.
Seal up the cracks, and
Patch the holes.
Wash away the gloom.

Don’t give up now
Before the work is done.
Peel away the old;
Your restoration has begun.
