How many of us listen to that inner voice? And how many times have we ignored it? The poem below I wrote a decade ago. I now try to listen more intently. Because when I fail to listen it usually tells me…’I told you so’.
When God created man, he gave us certain choices
As well as all our senses he provided inner voices.
A voice that you can listen to, or if you choose ignore.
A voice that’s there for everyone, if you open up that door.
It tells us what is right from wrong, if we choose to listen.
Choices are our own to make, we’re responsible for our decisions.
Sometimes the choices that we make have been a big mistake.
And by the actions in our choice, have created much heartache.
We neglect to listen to that voice, that’s there to help and guide.
And often follow selfishness, and push the voice aside.
But be sure, that voice will be heard, if not now then later.
For we can’t escape that inner voice, when we meet our maker.
So if you hear that little voice, and you know it’s right.
Try to follow where it leads; be sure it knows your plight.
It’s always there to help you, to guide you in your choice.
And if you know it’s right for you, you’ll know you’ve heard the voice.
