“There Is A Voice Inside The Body.” | Prompt #23

“There is a voice inside of you
That whispers all day long,
“I feel this is right for me,
I know that this is wrong.”
No teacher, preacher, parent, friend
Or wise man can decide
What’s right for you–just listen to
The voice that speaks inside.”

How well said by Shel Silverstein about inner voice. This prompt is nothing but my inner voice which is asking me a lot of questions tonight. Questions which I’ve been ignoring since months, and years or maybe decades. Who knows?

It says, I’m your inner self, your inner voice, it’s begging me to keep better take care of myself. To know my worth, to take care of me, feel me, fill me, need me, give weed to me.

You’re me, and I am all yours. That’s the only truth. I cannot be apart from you, I am in your good and bad times both. I, be the happiest in your best, and hint you when something bad is about to happen. Let’s keep this sanity together. Forever. Love me the way you love others, and see the difference.

Tonight, prompt number 23, gave me an opportunity to write about inner voice which ask me questions. A lot of them:


How did I ever miss out myself in the search of others?

When was the last time I did something for myself?

Do I even remember the letter I had written for myself for appraising my little efforts?

How could I forgive everyone who did bad to me but cursed myself for being wrong at times?

Why did I expect from people around but not myself?

How come others stand first while I am suppressing my inner self?

How did I lost a diamond in me, in search of gold in others?

Why did I remember everything for others but forget almost everything for myself?

How come I am always kind to others, and on the other hand, so cruel to myself?

Why does the concern come for others often than my own self?

How could I listen to everyone around but lost my own whisper?

I’ve always cheered them up, and suffered alone in a dark room.

Why do I blame others but never introspected my own choices?

Why have I always given chances to them, but didn’t get one from myself?

Why did I give up on myself but always dragged others even when they didn’t deserve me?

And lastly, why did I choose to fall in love with anyone but with myself first?

  1. Whisper within our own self is the most important voice and it always tells you the right things.
    Hearing and following it would be great way to connect more with our own self


  2. Such deep questions haa.
    I felt each and every question, it’s just so right, it makes so much sense.

    Inspite knowing everything, inspite knowing that noone else other than you yourself are gonna be there with you till the end, why we put peole first?
    Just so good to read and ponder upon. But I guess this is how we learn, such questions are so important for us to have better understanding of ourselves.

    There’s nothing better than self love and then once you’re filled with it, you can always share it with the world, noone can let you down then.

    I loved it.

  3. Sirrr, this is so relatable. I could feel the weight of these heavy questions. Why do we not treat ourselves like we should? I still remember how you used to tell me “Chandu, be your own best friend first before befriending others.” That’s the most important thing na. 😟 Thanks for reminding me again to listen and appreciate myself.
