The Book of Life

The Book of Life awaits my name;
No time to listen to that still, small voice.
I double check rules,
Craft fireproof plans,
Push you out of the way,
And race toward my calling,
Afraid that you will get there first.
That's my calling.

The still, small voice has plenty of time,
And tries to tell me:
"Love one another."

Written for Carry On Tuesday prompt # 129: "Love one another."

I love what you did with the prompt. The most important messages sometimes DO come with a small voice, don't they?
