Careful of voices questioning you

Mindful of chatter monkey minds pursue

Voices you’re hearing where are they from

What are the sources that make you numb


Meek dears complacent souls at rest

Rarely challenged or goal of self conquest

Bold roam among us seeking something more

Summoning courage doing what they’re here for


Thrusting forward pulled by visions gleam

They too hear voices questioning their dream

Sometimes a whisper sometimes a shout

Demanding vigilance managing our pout


When voices dance in your brain

Say “cancel cancel” no time for rain

Listen acknowledge caution’s concerned voice

Respond mindfully solidifying your choice


Recognize this process serving your desires

Grounds whims fantasies and pure heart aspires

Thank those smart voices causing chagrin

Remember they serve and guide from within


Are you pursuing the dreams of your personal mission?

What stories do you tell yourself about why you are not on your path?

How can you get beyond stories and to the work of your life?
