What I often hear ….

April 23, 2010


“I am so busy
I cannot hear myself think
If I slow down I’m afraid
Of what’s inside me
If I stop I’ll hear the voice
Of the brokenness in me”

“Where can I go with that pain
Who can listen to my story
Do I dare bring it to the light
The hurt and the shame”

“No one really knows
Does anyone really care
Is there someone I can trust
Who will not bring judgment
Who will choose to listen to truth
And be willing to forgive”
I know what matters
It’s the person before you
Who’s looking you in the eye
Listening with care
Loving with no strings attached
It’s a gift beyond measure
