Listen by Gabriel Angrand

I listen
to the whispers
of One who filled spaces
with words
and birthed light
out of nowhere

Warped time and space
to terraform homes
for all kinds of life

Spoke autobiography
into biospheres that leave us
with a million
thousand words
behind our irises

And from mountain
tops to ocean floors
all nature roars in volumes speaking of its Lion King

I’m listening
to the whispers and
they tell me,
“He can reform you too”

“Rebrand you
with the mission
He gave your ancestors
and we hope you’ll let Him
speak through you too”

I am Gabriel Angrand, a Haitian American pastor’s kid who started writing poetry in the 4th grade! I feel like I’ve always written poems like mirrors because poetry became a powerful way to reflect on my emotions and my faith.

Just like me, I hope you can see yourself in my poetry and come away from it learning something new. I have a second book coming out this year, so follow me on Instagram to stay up-to-date!
