The Orchestra of Life

Life is a grand performance,
Sounds blending
From souls here
     And there;
The harmony of hearts
Who sing as they’re tuned.

Each instrument provides a voice
Unique and all its own,
A special splash of color
That shimmers in its place.

The strengths and weaknesses
Of every soul,
And the talents of each performer
Lend music to the show;
Each echo of the heart
Contributes to the choir:
Each one is a piece that adds to the puzzle;
Each one is a cherished jewel to prize.

The goals of education
Must not demand duplication;
We must not make each instrument
Sound similar, or sound the same,
But help each instrument
Make music,
Singing as sweetly as possible
How he or she was made.


With a veil between us,
We could not see God
Nor could He speak to us
Like He longed to do,
And so He used His own blood
To rip it in two,
That we might approach Him
With boldness.

He died to give us the freedom
To talk to Him,
To walk into His presence
And bask in His love.

But we never felt comfortable
Talking to God,
And so we decided
To sew back the veil
Between us,
Once again setting up other men
As a wall to guard us.

His love continues to chase us,
Ripping veil after veil,
Breaking chain after chain,
But still we choose to spend our time
Sewing veils.
