Stop trying to get my attention
There are too many commands
What do you want from me, O World?
You always leave me with empty hands.
You don’t care about me
You never did
because I love your Enemy.
You and your philosophy and shiny toys
it’s all a facade.
Every word that comes from your mouth
is an empty promise.
You say, “look here,” “go there,”
little do people know
they are going nowhere.
I’m tired of your shouting,
You’re so loud.
But not as loud
as the silence
when I’m alone.
I need someone to fill the eternity shaped hole in my being
How often I forget
that is exactly what God’s doing.
Maybe I just need to close my eyes
and listen intently
for a quiet whisper
that will sustain me
