A Whisper in the Chaos (by Enoch Rottier)


Posted on August 29, 2018

Can you hear it?

Amidst the raging storms,

the chaos of every voice screaming to be heard;

 

A whisper for the soul.

 

 

Can you feel it?

In the tossing and turning,

the earth shaking bombardment that takes every last breath;

 

A strength is rising.

 

 

Can you taste it?

After all the numbing,

consuming and ambling in the onslaught of excess;

 

The relief of contentment.

 

 

Can you smell it?

Through the scorched earth,

the rotten foundations and the flood of wreckage;

 

A fresh breeze of renewal.

 

 

Can you see it?

Greater than the looming shadows,

dark depths of oceans and power of tempests;

 

Hope.

 

 

—Enoch Rottier
