the world within me
Author: Ella

Chapter 65
Listen

Listen to the music

The subtle sullen sound

Listen to the preacher

The Word of God all round

Listen to the people

Their shouts of elation

Listen to the lovers

Their song of dedication

Listen to the friends

Their advice sound and right

Listen to the blind

Their lost of precious sight

Listen to the quiet

The silence they create

Listen to the hopeful

As they renounce their fate

Listen to the weaklings

Their endless cry for strength

Listen to the choir

Their chorus of length

Listen to the meek

They yearn to make a noise

Listen to the singers

How beautiful their voice

Listen to the unlistened

Bearing all the shame

Listen to your Lord

He’s always calling your name
