This needs to be a Sonnet

Like heavy cream needs to be butter:

Gentleness is subtleness;
And subtlety mocks clarity.
Who can hear a word too softly spoke,
Or bear truth without tenderness?
Hard hearts and broken hearts
Are so very much the same.
Lord only you can sort the difference
Among the sinews of the mind.
Your word alone is strong enough
To be both direct and kind.
Yet your wisdom chose to wield
Your truth on human tongues.
Your spirit hardens whom you harden
You will not forget whom you have chosen
Have mercy on your children Lord
As you have wounded, surely heal
