I Heard a Voice

Not sure who it was.

My intuition? The universe?

Mother earth? God?

(All of the above?)

This is more than it seems, it said.

Like an embryo in an egg, it said,

You will either hatch now

Or go rotten.

The message still echoes inside

These white walls.

I think it’s for me, and also

For everyone.
