Voices

We’re striving toward,
on one accord
a goal, to reach the
extent of our purpose.

But, the voices around us,
try to keep us at the feet
of those who want to
crush us with the malice
of defeat.

The Spirit says go forward.

But the voices,
of those around us
aren’t helping at all.

We feel trapped,
tied
in shackles of words
that lied.

Unable to go on.

But, we must seek truth,
even if it’s painful.
The truth that not
everyone will be
able to walk with us.

But, as The Lord looks on,
Each day, we have
a brand new song.
