MY VOICE

MY VOICE

I hear the music,
but canít make a sound.
I open my mouth,
my voice canít be found.

A gift I received,
with intentions to share.
The thief came to steal,
without any care.

Darkness surrounds me,
I donít see the reason.
Iím lonely and cold,
in my voiceless season.

I long to raise,
my anthem high.
To soar as the eagles,
spread my wings and fly.

Then it happened,
the sun warmed the earth.
Something stirred in me,
a feeling of worth.

With a great crescendo,
the sky became clear.
I felt something leave me,
I believe it was Fear.

My mind began to race,
I heard a new song.
Do I dare try,
it had been so long.

With eyes closed I sense,
the presence of the King.
And opened my heart,
a new song I did sing.

Wonderful poem, Marita. You capture the true essence of talent hidden by fear but drawn out by God.

Oh, your voice is speaking with an anointed tongue here. Your piece reminds me of one of my favorite verses: "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." John 10:10 You really ministered to me with your talent.
