The Walls of Jericho

Those who lie build walls - 
they carefully construct
their version of truth. 
They shellack the stones
and settle inside their
forts of deception. 

Until.

A still, small voice says, 
"Enough."
And then another voice
And another. 

Until finally, 
the noise is so 
deafening -
that the walls come
crumbling down.
Jericho is taken,
once again. 



Written last year after the inspirational moment a local woman went public with her decades long pain.
