Echoing Song

There are so many voices;
so many whispers.
There are so many half truths;
so many lies.
They vie for attention;
for someone to hear;
for someone to believe;
for someone to give in
to their relentless pressure -
O, the relentless pressure.
Their noise attempts 
to drown out all other sounds;
to choke out life itself.

Listen deeper
beneath the cacophony. 
In the deepest depths 
of all that is
remains the echo
of the song that gave birth
to all things.
You are chosen.
You are beautiful.
You are enough.
You are loved.
This is the truth
of who you are.
Lose yourself
in the mystery
of this echoing song.
