A thousand voices screaming at me
to meet their demands
to move faster than I was able
I became a restless soul.

A thousand times I was tempted
to throw up my hands
to give up all hope
to lay down and die.

A thousand nights of silence
engulfed my soul
forced me to kneel
to pray beside my bed.

A thought like sun’s brightness
flooded my soul
He spoke gently in my ear,
“Be still and know I am God.”
