Still Small Voice
I should have listened.
There is truth in the small still voice
that whispers to the heart.
It’s not that I wasn’t taught
or that I ignored Jiminy Cricket
sitting on my shoulder
It was just that spiny stubborn part of me
that always has to take the double dare.
Sometimes I win
Sometimes I lose
And sometimes . . .
I even listen and give in.
This time . . . .I should have.
