Listen To Our Inner Voice

Updated on November 22, 2010

Who We Really Are

Each day goes by quicker than the day before

It can not be possible since the same time is still in each day

Then why ?

 If we think back when we were young when the days of school never seemed to end

The wrinkles on our face start to add up like books on a shelf

You start with one then before you know it you have ten

The people who we have known all our lives are secretly disappearing

Where did the day go when we wouldn't of missed saying hi ? 

Now we can't remember their phone number or the last time we talked

The children you once knew have grown to young adults

They are busy driving and off to work or college

It is time to take account for what we have and what we have done

Like an inventory every business does once a month like clock work

Who are we under the skin ?

Someone who has been true to their own ambitions and desires

No matter what we tried we never gave up

Sitting in the corner quiet as a mouse

Listening to ourselves not all the other noises and endless chatter

Lets slip away into our own bodies that have protected us and served us well

Giving thanks to our spirit that carries us through the darkest of times

Relaxing and appreciating who we are with all our faults

Seeing the person we are over years of investigation and careful study

This is our life and the many changes we have taken over time

Some Good and some that still needs a little more improvement

Tweaked just a tad

We are in for the long haul

We are here till the final die is cast

We are here until our last chip is cashed in

Why not get to know the real me

The one who doesn't have to dress up to impress

Being quiet from time to time makes so much sense

It is understanding who is the real person behind that wonderful face

So if we don't take the time now when will we ?

When are hands our folded and we are all dolled up with heavy makeup

Wearing a suit we never did like too much tucked way back in our closet for this special day

Wearing a half smile half grin

I rather see myself now

When I can still take a bow

For all I have done and for all I have ever been
