The Voice Inside – Written Wednesday 15th October 2008 (Aged 33)

The Voice Inside

it is the inner voice
not always expressed
the love, the hope
the dreams, the fear
the distant truth
they wish to draw near
the hand dipped in
in an attempt to make it clear

some people think
it makes them a better person
those that know,
know it just makes a person

the tugboat of the ill defined
the resurrection
the inner sight of the tragic mind
the beauty of inner dreams
that we reach to find
the voice out that shouts from within
that writes as if the crayons are alive

the mirror, for the voice inside

James Garratt – Wednesday 15th October 2008
