My life was a discordant cacophony,
My head a jumble of sounds,
Clattering in my thoughts,
A constant deafening noise,
Accusing me of failure,
Words seeking to drown out hope,
That left me wanting to die.
Then I came to the end of my strength,
I cried out enough,
I can’t go on,
Love turned his face to me,
He took my hand,
Leading me to a place of rest,
I listened to the sounds of rest,
Its beautiful melody,
Beating in time with my heart’s rhythm.
The noise receded into the background,
Its harsh accusations seen as lies,
Now my life beats in time,
With Eternity’s rhythm,
A melody of endless love.
