ALWAYS A VOICE

Always a voice

tortured, protesting, cynical

soaring against injustice

jeering, more sinned against than sinning

always this voice

 

Always a voice

terse, breviloquent, traditional

indignant to agitation

sighing, hardened toward sin

always this voice

 

Always a voice

indulgent, resigned, parental

understanding all ages

sighing in compassion, forbearing all sin

always this voice

 

Always a voice

pastoral, pacific, serene

looking ever inward

sighs of devotion, weighing our sins

always this voice

 

Never a Voice

craven, reticent, parsimonious

looking only inward

murmering intolerance, here lies our sinner

with never a clear voice
