This poem was written for the 2015 Poem-a-Day (PAD) Challenge. This was Day 2’s poem.

Listen?

Do you hear it calling you?

Your soul wants you to know

Your soul is ready to share

Are you ready to hear what it has to say?

Is your mind open to possibility?

It says: Don’t wait!

You say: Wait!

But

With waiting comes loss

Loss of time

Loss of Pride

Loss of Power

Listen?

Do you hear it calling you?

Calling you to new adventures

Calling you to new love

Calling you to reclaim your talents

Calling you to reclaim your bounty

Do you hear it?

Don’t let your soul secrets pass you by

When your soul calls you

Listen!

Temptation to resist the call

Fear

Hesitation

Then

Aha!

My soul suffers when I don’t heed the need

To listen to MY soul secrets
