 Prophecy and Poetry

(Have you ever noticed when you
resist something uncomfortable
in your life it gets bigger...
And when you embrace it, you grow
through it with new strengths and

I resisted the clashing symbols
The ring became a roar
I cupped my ears ever tighter
The noise I could bear no more

Maybe I could drink and drown
Pop a pill and go numb
...Instead I decided to listen
The roar became a hum
I listened more intently
And thanked it for being there
Turned out it was a blessing
An answer to a prayer.
