Poem: Babel, O Babble

January 10th, 2005

The sounds of mine
Humble me to the ground
Making me beg for patience and compassion
The many tongues utter mutual nonsense
How did we ever get this way?

The voices in unison
Oneness of thought
Brought Man to his proudest moment and vanity
Toppled by Your might and power
Why did You do it this way?

Now pleading a case
Ears deaf to words
The sounds fail to communicate
Hearts are hardened to the coal-covered diamonds
Will You provide the way?
