Awake and Listen

Awake and listen
to the words loudly spoken
and believe them
if they speak of Truth.

Awake and listen
to the words loudly spoken
and trust them
if they speak of Love.

Awake and listen
to the words loudly spoken
and act on them
if they speak of Eternity.

For if the words that you hear
are words that speak of death
but are feigned jabs at life
these words will bring more harm than Truth.

For if the words that you hear
are words of oppression and aggression
but leave you doubting what is right
these words will bring more condemnation than Love.

For if the words that you hear
are words of should have and ought not
but confine you to the past
these words will blind you to the glory of Eternity.

Awake and listen to words of
Truth so that you may be free
and Love so that you will be confident
and Eternity so that you will know courage.
