Soul chatter

More money will not make the voices stop.
Neither will the arms of your biggest crush
Nor the applause of your greatest critic.
The soul chatters incessantly
Reminding you how unhappy you are going to be
If things don’t go your way
And how hard you need to work
For your ego’s upkeep.
It takes a while before we realize
That we are looking for isn’t another thing
A particular person
Or even a feeling –
But rather the quest
Is for a place where your soul
Encounters something greater than itself
Is violently overcome
And stilled to silence.

Truly my soul finds rest in God;
    my salvation comes from Him
-Psalm 62:1
