“I heard the voice of the Lord saying, whom shall I send?” –Isaiah
In my silence
I heard the voice of whom my soul loves.
I answered the call with much difficulties
Without understanding the path laid out for me,
I simply trust.
I trust the Master’s plan
To take me to the promise of my deliberation.
I do not force myself to remember my past,
For it follows me like a shadow
Coming and going as it pleases.
Staying longer when the sun shines
In every crevice of my being
Measuring against my present
Stalking everywhere I set foot.
Then a stillness steps in
To rid the shadow too monstrous in nature;
Too stubborn to let loose of its hovering
Sometimes, I hide
Not a hiding of a coward; but one who waits,
Till the calamities be overpast
Sometimes, I face it with a force–
A force, a strength, which is completely supernatural-
Connecting me with the Source.
