While protecting ourselves from the billion voices daily clamouring for our attention, do we inadvertently tune out the Voice that really matters?

Surround sound

voices clamouring


Pressing, persuading

pushing, pummelling

deafening, numbing

senses reeling

spirit paralysing…


De-sensitized we block

building our immunity,

weary of mixed messages

bewildered by dissonance

evolving shallow thinking.

Indifferently, turning off –

as re-cycle bin of soul

reaches overflowing…


Into the morass

enters “still, small Voice”

breaking through

calmly re-assuring

authoritatively speaking

majestically unfolding

“Pay attention

to what you hear”

It’s not enough to listen

We must ‘hear’ deep inside.
