Where do you go when your charge is low

When energy wanes and you have no place to go

When the horizon is looking bleak

When fear has you gripped and you cannot speak


When longing is present and your cup is dry

When you look up only clouds in the sky

When a vision of future is not on your screen

When screams fill your insides know what I mean


When laughter and smiles have abandoned your face

When all that you’ve worked for gone without a trace

When all your loved ones can’t help though they try

When inside and out you just want to cry


When the alarm says wake up! And you say, NO

When nothing seems worth it where do you go?

When your get up got up and went

When all of your pennies have paid for the rent


The place you can turn to is inside of you

It’s the force in each cell that says I want to do

It’s the primordial desire to live from your essence

To be who you are and contribute your presence


How much attention do you spend focusing on your own inner voice?

Do you listen to the wisdom of what that voice is telling you?

Do you notice what happens when you do not pay attention?
