Poetry Poem: Listen
Written by Liam
When I always did what others demanded!
When I always went when others called me!
When I always listened to what other told me!
I was lost
I’d forgotten to listen
I’d forgotten to see
With my inner eye
I’d forgotten to decide
With my own thoughts
So easy to get lost
Amongst this all!
So simple to though to re-discover
Strength, hope and happiness
I simply decided for stillness
I decided for quietness
I decided to listen deeply
Listen to my own voice
Hidden, still soft and unobtrusive
Still all mine, truely mine
Listen to me answer those questions
Listen to me reply to those calls
Listen to me thinking about ideas
Now it’s done
I’m again in contact
I’m speaking, whispering with my deep
My inner self for
It’s only from here
Reaching out into my life
Abundance, joy and love
Follows patiently in these foot steps.
