What voice calls my attention from the far room of these hallows?
Is it the clear voice of reason attempting to help navigate my course?
Is it the voice of truth calling on deaf ears until its sound is hoarse?
OUR FATHER WHO ART IN HEAVEN, HALLOWED BY THY NAME
What eyes follow my every move in the darkness of this night?
What eyes look up my soul and stir emotions within me so right?
Is it the eyes of a stranger with the worst of sinister intention?
Is it the eyes of a saint pushing away the evils to gain my attention?
THY KINGDOM COME, THY WILL BE DONE, ON EARTH AS IN HEAVEN
What hand touches my heart from places that I cannot see?
A hand which stirring such deep emotions within the soul of me
Is it the hand of fate waking me from this nightmares of strife?
Or Is it the hand of death come to take me from this earthly life?
GIVE US THIS DAY, OUR DAILY BREAD; FORGIVE OUR TRESPASSES
Things come to man in all sizes, shapes, and unrecognized form
Prying at his door of inner-self and displacing him from the norm
When does one open that door and when does one hold the lock?
How long to wait for feelings to pass marking time by the clock?
AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO TRESPASS AGAINST US
What message is this upon my heart; what is it that I relate today?
What words will pass forth from my mouth that I decide to say?
Is it a message of faith and courage or one of doubt and fear?
Am I just the messenger or the source; is someone with me here?
AND LEAD US NOT IN TEMPTATION; DELIVER US FROM EVIL
What words are upon my tongue put there by those to me unknown?
Will those spoken words be lost in time or etched upon the stone?
Who will receive that which I have spoken and how will they react?
Can those words be healing phrases or will they tear and distract?
FOR THINE IS THE KINGDOM, THE POWER, THE GLORY
Who knows what lies in the cold depths of mankind’s beating heart?
Are we here to simply speak the truth or is it lies our tongues impart?
Not one knows the answers to the questions which this life will pose
Only God knows the answers; the rest of us are left to simply suppose.
FOREVER AND EVER…..AMEN
