I am an eclectic fountain of wisdom
Showering seeds of hope to the despairing
I am pure enough to clean stained hearts
Deep enough to drown evil
My water nourishes the dry bones of your soul.

I am as resilient as the walls of my grandmother’s house
The foundation that cements my pillars of strength is concretely layered with God’s word
and the prayers said inside these walls
No storm or rain can crumble me
No stones thrown at me can break me.

I am as loving as the dinner table
Laughter and memories are shared in my presence
The hungry come to me and they leave full of love
The dinner of my love feeds those seated in my heart.
