“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?
