The Forge

The Eternal Smith
Moves hardened hearts
Into the fire
The forge ablaze
By the ignition
Of youth’s bravado
And age’s wisdom
Softened by the heat
And flame of struggle
The community 
Is reshaped 
Reworked
Reconfigured
The Smith strikes blow
Upon blow
Grinds away rough edges
Until a new weapon
Emerges 
A sword that divides
Truth from deception
And righteousness
From desire
To lay bare
The imprisoned heart
Beating faintly
But not yet dead
