Do not speak

Do not speak too fast
   for I fear the speed of what you say
   will drown out what you want to.
 
What do you want to say?
   That you are lonely, and deep needs
   need filling by empty blabbering.
 
Where have you come from and where are you going?
Where have you come from and where are you going?
 
Isn’t that enough to speak about
   And ‘ere speaking, it needs deep thinking.
  true listening. It needs you to be quiet.
 
So you can hear what God has never stopped saying.
