The Hammer


Smashing hammer,

Shattered heart

Blow by blow,

Torn apart.


“Fat,” the hammer falls.

“Ugly,” the hammer falls.

“Stupid,” the hammer falls.

“Worthless,” the hammer falls.


Not in one shattering blow,

But bit by bit on a heart

That turns to stone.


About Julia

Welcome! I'm so glad you stopped by. My name is Julia. I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a teacher, and most recently, a writer. Above all, I am a daughter of the King. I am constantly amazed at God's goodness in my life; undeserved and unlimited. Come sit and visit awhile. The teapot's always on the stove.
