I heard a little voice, She whispered “It’s time.
It’s time for the madness to stop
The punishing regimes
The dysfunctional relationships
The caring too much
The giving too much
The beating down of self.”
She whispered more strongly this time, inside my head.
“It’s time to start the living of life
Free from judgement
Free from manipulative minds
Free from negative thinking
Free from old habits
Free from paranoia
Free from hate.”
She started smiling then, and my soul flooded with warmth and light like a bright summer morning.
“It’s time to open that door and run
Run like a child after school is out
Sing like a bird freed from a cage
Fly like a kite and soar so high
Dance like a leaf caught on the breeze
Live like a woman who knows time is precious
Live like a woman who has been shown the secret
That happiness is a choice and freedom is a gift.”
She slipped away then but didn’t feel alone.
I felt alive.
‘The Time Is Now’ I said out loud.
It took me so long to listen.
I Heard A Little Voice
