A hammer is a driving thing,
as in driving home a point –
a moniker my husband bear’s
to depict his tenacious fight.
There’s hammer hold, and
hitting the nail on the head,
and “If I had a hammer” –
testimony to its symbolism.
A hammer, much like character,
is innocuous on its own, requires
willingness to wield, and practice
to perfect, but can be very useful.
A tool – not in the derogatory sense,
unless a dream assailant carries on
a relentless pursuit – a part of self
intent on breaking through walls.
So, should you dream of hammer –
not the M.C. kind – then ask yourself
these questions: Am I on point, or
are my efforts actually constructive?
(Kind of like me with this NaPoWriMo exercise, lol.)
