HUSH…

Hush.
The strongest voice whispers beneath the silence,
composing the structure of its weight from the
deepest echoes of the resting heartbeat.
Diaries of ago play incessant mantras upon the
stringed belly of untoned thought, leaving
the mind heavy, spirit obsessed, and
soul plucked to frayed by yesterdayโ€™s follies.
No room breathes for anew, as suffocating fears
manifest destiny in the cycles of the psyche.
Unleash the bitter known for the promise of greater,
for it is only the self that can be so consuming as to
eat away its own hope, its own joy, its own freedom
to live abundantly. Surrender the noise,
binding the ears from all tones within and without,
until peace ingests your being and you lay in waiting
for that which you can only hear when all else is
silenced.

  4. There are so many powerful lines in your poem. I think my favorite is “Unleash the bitter known for the promise of greater,
    for it is only the self that can be so consuming as to eat away its own hope, its own joy, its own freedom to live abundantly.” But it was a hard choice. Thanks so much for writing this for the challenge.
