I am a hoarder in my heart

Of all the nasty things, and stupid things

Ideas that draw us apart.

At work, at play, at rest

I keep it all in; nothing strays outside

To endanger my pride as I hide inside.

I am a hoarder in my heart

Building up prejudice long before

It came to be trendy.

I would never spend a penny

I bat away all the balls bowled

Nothing hallowed.

I am a hoarder in my heart

Of all I wanted to say but never did.

A lack of confidence to confess or make redress.

Leaving me in deep dismay

About what I could do

Short of being in You Lord.

I am a hoarder in my heart

Neglect built up to the ceiling

Ignorance blocking the doors

No one can enter anymore.

Unless God explores

Jesus comes through all our walls and doors.
