The Blessing of Silence

Another body of lies

dressed in the threads of compassion

another day of noise

pencilled into a calendar of silence

another row of talking heads

pretending that wisdom can be uttered by celebrities

do they know they are murderers

hacking

stabbing

with words to kill our calm

flashing

bellowing

insights to pull us down into darkness

but the work of the Spirit carries on

even when the experts say it doesn’t

work in times of war

the screams of hatred may seem strong

and oh so logical

but the Creator of worlds

offers us something stronger

humans may rage and rumble

and take pride in their violent clatter and clamour

but the soul truly at peace is holding onto something greater
