Poetry: Listen

By Monica C. Voskamp

The universe is speaking

And patiently waiting

For you to listen.

Slow your worry down

Stop this hurried demanding

For life to be solved right now.

Take this moment of time

Let your whole being pause

For just a little while to listen.

The universe is pleading

Human, please stop now

Stop all this nonsense and listen.

You’ve been so caught up

In all the noise,

In all the judgements,

In all the headlines strife.

I’m gently inviting you

To let that heaviness go,

Let it go and listen.

Always hope. Always believe. Always love. ❤

Poetry: Soul Talk

By Monica C. Voskamp


Feel that there?

That is your heart beat.

Feel that pain awakening?

That is your soul.

Your soul saying,

I hurt.

I need.

I want.

I am,


Your soul knows how to speak.

Listen dear heart.

Listen to your soul,



Always love. Always hope. Always believe. ❤
