UBC 25 - AtoZ - Voices


Day 25  of the Ultimate Blogging Challenge and the letter  V  for the  AtoZ Blogging Challenge.


V is for  ...  VOICES

Thought it was time to write a poem.  Sharing the poem from my poetry blog  ...

Take the road less travelled
Said a thought inside my head
That road is long and gravelled
But to treasures you'll be led

Take the next detour
Said a thought inside my head
Though it drizzles, maybe pours
But to sunshine you'll be led

The feet they keep to familiar path
Squashed is the thought inside my head
Then Spirit nudges without wrath
The road I walk is shred

You cannot reach the highest heights
If you cannot try be bold
Learn not to push away or fight
The voices of your soul


Have a happy day.


Warm Regards

  10. Voices of our souls get lost these days in the bad words we speak, the wrongs we do to others and many of us sadly have no idea how to listen to that inner voice within us. Beautiful poetry :)

  20. "Back to Sunlight you'll be led" - that belief, that for me captures the soul of this poem. It is that hope, that self-confidence, that faith in The Big One that makes all the difference.

    Lovely poem S.
