I swear shallow hearts
Take forever to be deepened
And at times one cannot
Hollow out a heart
Without leaving a shallow end
And at times we begin to grow
We get scared
By the walls collapsing in
Giving is solid ground
And instead of digging deeper
We run back to the surface
And in those moments
Of weakness
Do our defenses we built
Against sin fail
And we fall back into
Knowing sin against You.
