VATIC Expressions: Truth, Transparency, Transformation

Volume 2, Fall 2016 Issue. A division of Vatic Publishing®, LLC. 


by Tina Steele

When you speak to me, speak loudly

Drowning out voices of my past

Reminding me of failures

One by one


When you sing to me

Let the verses be filled with hope and joy

Soothing away the pain

That seems to last….


A lifetime, a minute

Is like eternity because

It’s filled with silence

No direction for the future

No instruction for my present

Just speak to me….


A one word salutation will

Suffice for this moment

I need to know

You are here.


When you whisper to me

Please allow each syllable

To permeate all of me


When you serenade me,

Let it transcend my senses

And envelope me in my destiny….


A lifetime

Summed up in a moment of transparency

The revelation of my fear of

Myself… Fear of my great

Success and great….



A moment summed up in my


My point of conception revealed

And completed

When you sing to me.
