Haunting Whispers
  Haunting Whispers
 
Are those haunting little whispers
Coming from within my very soul
Are they calling to remind me
Of the path I must take, to reach my lives goal
 
Have I moved off that path of mine
Have I left some things still undone
Am I staying in one place too long
Is it now time to move along
 
How do I let go of the hurt and anger
How do I ease this ache within my heart
How do I  find the strength to forgive
Those that hurt me in my past
 
It’s time now to look deep inside of me
Find that special place within
Let the pain, the fear, and anger go
So I can begin to live my life again
 
For “true” living is not just existing
For we can all do that, day to day
Living is about experiencing the moments
And all things that life, brings our way
 
The lessons I will learn this day
If I truly listen to the whispers coming from within
Is to forget, forgive and let go of the fear
So here today, is the place where I begin
 
Begin to follow my path again
Leaving behind all the guilt and fear
Looking forward to what the future brings
Each hour, of every day, of every year
 
I know not where this path will lead
Or who I’ll meet along the way
But it’s time for me to let go of the past
For I finally heard those haunting whispers, today.

Star's right you know. It took me a while to let go of the past and to begin living for the now! As usual, simply beautiful!

Sure them whispers ain't a ghost? Or one of them 555 other people inside you? LOL Seriously, the introspection was deep. I liked the 5th verse about true living. We live or we just exist. It's up to each of us to decide which one we do.
