Keep Still and Listen


We all have the voice within,

If only we can learn to keep still and listen.

Other people will always have a say,

But only you can truly find your way.

God talks to us even if we don’t listen,

Often we are the ones who have forgotten,

That when we ask so shall it be given,

If only we can learn how to keep still and listen.

The voice within us,

Is God talking to us.

We just don’t trust it enough,

Especially when times get really tough.

We turn to others for advice,

Yet giving advice can be the worst vice.

If you listen to that inner voice so loving and wise,

What may seem tragic could turn out to be a blessing in disguise.

Be discerning on whom you listen to,

Many times people are so quick to tell you what to do.

But your lessons and experiences are unique to you,

Keep still and listen, is what you need to do.

In the stillness of the night,

When the moon and stars are shining so bright,

When you’re caught between fight or flight,

Keep still and listen, the answer is whatever feels right.

When you feel like you’ve lost more than you’ve won,

Keep still in the crack of dawn.

It is in silence that your strength can be drawn,

Before long your worries will soon be gone.

We all have the voice within,

If only we can learn to keep still and listen

Soon we’ll uncover the wisdom that’s hidden,

Now, rather than later, is the time to begin.
