What does it mean for one who hears nothing?
Sometimes, we feel deeply based on what we hear
but what does it mean for one who has grown numb?
The impact of hearing is lost when we have the sense of hearing
and no one speaks to us.
Waiting to understand pain, with ears opened wide
and we perceive no solution to what has plagued us.
How can we use what we have when we are disconnected
from that which functions as our connection to others?
Listening becomes of no value because our hearing has been to no avail.
Peace for the person who hears, while others are left with muffled meaning.
Peace for the person who hears, while others are drifting into despair.
How can we interact without hearing from an external entity?
Is feeling viable? Have we opened our hearts to receive?
Perhaps, we expect everyone to be able to speak – in the way that we have received.
Our hearing is simply an entry way to receive from another who gives…
God speaks, and it isn’t always in an audible voice.
Sometimes, His voice can be in a circumstance that changes us or a problem that produces patience in us.
When we listen without our ears…maybe we can feel differently, maybe we can have the promise of peace.
Peace is for all who have ears to listen; open them all.
