Prophets Amongst Us

” If there be a prophet among you, I the Lord will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.”


A prophet I must be

for in my dream I did see

places unknown and far away,

foregone events unfolding lucidly.


A prophet I must be

for in my dream I envisioned

my brother dying in vain,

my uncle accidentally maimed.


A prophet I must be

for in my dream I glimpsed

people I had yet to greet,

challenges I had yet to meet.


If a worthy prophet I could be,

then why do so many questions remain?

Why can’t I view the recipe

to wipe out hunger and pain?


Simone Arbour Vegh
