Buried Hatchets



The heart throughout a lifetime
Endures pain now and then
Stored and buried hatchets
Remember what not when

The heart is bathed in leisure
Not noticing its gifts
Comfortable in its atmosphere
Days and decades drift

The wounds though buried hinder
One's natural trusting ways
Cynical, suspicious
Doubting those that may

Liberate the probable
Invigorate the wit
Producing smiles and hopeful
Joyfulness legit

Remove the hidden hatchets
You needn't remember what
Dismiss them in a grouping
In general to rebut*

-EVE Featherstone

*rebut - 1. claim or prove that (evidence or an accusation) is false.
2. drive back or repel (a person or attack).
