VOICE everlasting whispers

Written by: SEAN CLAUDINE

I fail to sleep by night as

My soul sails away from me

My eyelids collapse, heavy with sleep

As I hear toothless voices

Spouting out truth like a fountain with rusty waters

They inform me of memories I knew nothing of

The memories lost with those who came to pass

The memories of ways healing to my loneliness

And portions to my present sorrows (cause of lament)

Memories of gifts, that promises as heavy clouds promises heavy rain

I hear the lamentations of those long gone as they whisper unto me

Their whispers thin with our desires

Their faces marked with maps of aging

They say child

Long have we sought for peace from the beginning of our beings,

Timeless have we blamed the rivers of being dump purposely because of their everlasting endurance

But now as you can tell, the pursuer has caught up with us, the weary

So we chose the dry shell to arouse

For you the eggshell when planted with the right yolk, the outcome is

Gifts available in abundance

Run and never grow weary

You may live calmly as you please

A life of slow life style

And never hurry or rush

A life of patiency, for you need not hurry

The yoke is in you

As i try to reason all this

I notice that of all these writings I scribble

I am beyond age to understand

For I wrote in ancient vowels everyone seemed to have forgotten

For sure I am a hatchling

Simplify your riddles you whom dust has claimed

For I am a hatchling compared to your knowledge

Pardon I ask

Puzzled as i was I asked for translation

Ask who my child?

The great voices turn to trembling voices as they say

Ask the florist where to find the rose of Sharon

Ask the builders which is the chief cornerstone

Ask the physicians which is the greatest amongst them all

Ask the Einsteins for the source of eternal data

And when you find the lily of the valley

He shall lead you wherever He goes, He shall carry you through difficult phases

For He is the good Shepherd, the greatest amongst them all

He shall renew your shell

Fill in the yoke

And the river of flowing living waters shall flow in you

now voice.
