God speaks to each of us;
alas, that old devil
is right there whispering
in our other ear.

Who is wise enough
to always know which is which?
Who can say: God told me this
or God said to do that?

You can ask the priest
and he'll have his answers.
you might ask your mother;
she'll have hers as well.

You-know-who whispers
in their ears too. Even mom's.
Ask your heart; if it
is good, it will know.

It will know the truth,
no matter how many the lies
come whispering to our ear.
It knows the voice of God.
