“Fences”

young kids growing up
in pain

not being loved
not feeling loved
not knowing love

finding church hoping
to fit in
rebellious from

not being loved
not feeling loved
not knowing love

actions speaking louder
than words
parents guarding their children
from rebellion

excluding
forbidding
ignoring

same kids who grew up
in pain
now
not knowing love
from the church

learning about God through
teaching
example?
fear

not being loved
not feeling loved
not knowing love

walk away in their heart
in pain
rebelling

from God
from the church
from the parents

turning to pain

to be loved
to feel loved
to know love?

because pain is all they know
at home
at church

instead of guarding your kids from
the hurt
the lost
the broken

teach them
to love
to become love
to show love

and see what heaven looks like
on earth
