DailyJois: The Voice a poem by Shel Silverstein


This poem made my day. I know a lot of people doing things they don’t really like, that they are only doing it because they are told to do it and they just feel like they don’t have a choice. Same feeling when you’re no longer motivated or you got caught up the system and can’t find a way out. I personally feel the same way.

For me the first 4 lines of the poem is stating that there is a voice inside you whispering “Freedom to decide and do things because it makes you happy and you think at it is right for you even though you might encounter risks along the way.” If you listen to what you know instinctively, it will lead you down the right path. Your passion often reminds you of what’s important and what makes you happy.

This poem may be simple and short, it has the ability to speak to a lot of people. Summary, remember no matter what happens and what you are faced with, always base your decisions on what you want to do and what you think is right. Only you can make the right decision for yourself.
