It became still…

I could hear my very own lungs and feel my very own heart beat…

Like being lost in a forest, groping in the darkest of night, chasing and evading shadows… 

In the midst of far reaching silence, I heard the crickets, the frogs and beetles… 

My ears could tell the very differnce between all these night crawlers, their very sounds echoing into tunnels and void space…

Then it became still… As spirits walked past humans, as souls departed into vanishing eternity…it became very still; 

Pain ceased, worry failed and knowledge stopped! It became very still!

The birds were off into their nests, the wild beasts fell to sleep, the gentle breeze creased the dry harmattan  leaves, it became so very still…

Within and without it became sorely still… We held our faces to the ground, we sort for tears but our eyes did fail us, we opened mouths to scream or swallow but the gates were too weak, the grinders had lost their grind… It became still…

We walked the aisles, we beat the walls but sound was to faint to wake the dead!

It just became still then we became numb…

We died within but lived on without… Until mercy reminded us, in the midst of the excruciating pain and total surrender to fate not faith… 

It became still but as the chariots pulled over at zion’ gate , heaven gave a defeaning ovation to the arrival of a god, a preist and King! 

He was still here on earth but the heavens shook!

It became still!
