Reflection on 'Shores of Silence'

REFLECTION ON READING A POEM BY KAROL WOJTYLA - SHORES OF SILENCE

Lord ,every living being is your work of art.
Every creature is a word that you have spoken-
a word that is in you for all eternity.
As your word, you have set me free
to speak your word of life in a world
where some will hear and some wont want to hear;
but what are you asking-what is your word to me?
Just to listen, to hear, to be in that gentle stance of the word of god
who came that all-whether rich or poor,
                                                             young or old,
                                                             weak or strong
may have life and have it to the full.
