In the solitude of thought
comes the silent rhetoric of persuasion,
the blatant misguided fuel of bias and belief,
impassioned and born of subconscious conclusions.
How often we listen to this inner voice,
this muttering that defies logic and common sense,
to twist truth into malleable fodder for thought,
yet unconsidered in the light of reality.
This is not intuition, no inner truth,
but decisions past,
delivered to birth by fractious deeds,
oppression and slight of hand.
Why we consider our own voice to be true is ironic,
when we fall so perfectly over and over in life,
at the hands of our reticence and inaction,
choosing not to change from the fear of possibility.
How different life would be in acceptance,
conscious decisions that come from a knowing heart,
an intuition of potentials not fear of failure,
the building block of our past folly and bias.
That inner voice resounds strongly in a mind
adept at self-knowledge and acceptance,
always listening to a heart’s voice to confirm movement,
to realise how pure a thought is, and from where is has come.
Listening is our greatest gift of learning.
