A Large Ball Peen Hammer
I’ve had so much weight that
My back bent,
My legs buckled and
My heart cracked, then it broke.
Not from the poundage of a massive body,
But under the heaviness of a soul
Fused with steel
And over-laid with stone.
When my chipping didn’t loosen the rock,
What did I do to break away the load?
I got a bigger hammer.
Audio for The Right Tool for the Job--
It is about steeling one's soul to protect it. Then it is about covering up the soul with stone to hide it. And what do we do to remove that weight of stone and steel if what we are doing doesn't get the job done? We get different tools, i.e. different counsel, different friends, different work. Whatever. We get a bigger hammer till the weight off of our back and off of our soul is removed. skp
