A midnight writing led to this poem, enjoy! Keep kicking and smiling! -TJ Banski
Journey to finding her voice:
She didn’t know when it left
That tiny voice inside her head
She wandered near and far in search of it
Leaving no stone unturned
No tree unclimbed.
She then came upon a new fork in the road
One of great valleys and mountains
The other straight and narrow.
Her heart said take the first
Fear said “no the second.
Better to be safe than sorry”
She shook her head, spun about
and where ever she pointed
would be her route.
“No, no, the second is for certain” Fear egged her on.
“But there is more beyond the mountains,” said her heart
“Some thing grand I know!”
Curious of the first, that had beautiful views
She stomped her foot and made her way
toward the path with the mountains
And the valleys far below
What sights she saw, what adventures she faced
She even met others along the way.
They too had lost their voices,
They too sought a way.
More forks in the road came
Some companions came and went
But she stayed true on that windy path.
Many a moons went by when finally she came to end of the her trail
And there her tiny voice now big and strong
“You found me” it said
“Thank goodness you came.
Please, don’t ever go away.”
“What do you mean?” she replied to her dismay.
Tilting her head in the most peculiar way.
“You left me at the first fork in the road when you lost your way.”
“I’m here now” she said. “I found you
and I will never regret on how I got you back.”
