Shhhhh. Do you hear it?
Pause for a moment. Take a deep breath, lean in & listen closely.
Do you hear the tears falling?
Do you hear the hearts breaking?
Do you hear the confusion & the anger ringing out from all of humankind?
It's deafening when you really listen.
"We can no longer stay silent"
But no one knows how to speak anymore.
Our words get caught in the throats of personal, political & religious agendas.
Our eyes only want to see what our minds have filtered through the ages.

That end up causing the most pain.
Unity is silenced.
Morality is silenced.
Acceptance is given a distorted voice that opens doors to abuse & even more fear.
Our discernments are told to be convinced we are liars & haters and that the only way we can fix things is by people who seem to know better so that they can control us.
But things have not gotten better.
They've gotten worse.
Shhhhhh. Do you hear it?
Do you remember what that is?
It's mindfulness & self thought.
Its intelligence & prayer
It's Holy Spirit guiding you to think for yourselves & not be controlled by others.
It's love & not hate.
It's truth & not lies.
Rage feeds rage.
Hurt feeds anger.
And we are all pawns until we say
