Series The Inside Voice

The Inside Voice #7 – “Giver” and The Inside Voice #8 – “A Ship Passing”


I give and I give
and I give and I give and I give.
I give so frequently
that I forget-
I too,
should live.

I love doing things for other people and at times it can be to my detriment. I want to spoil the people I care about and I often put the needs of others before my own without even realizing it at the time.

A Ship in The Night

I want to be the stars
twinkling in the dark-
a ship passing through the night

The sun bursting through
after the rain-
a bird taking flight

Coming and going,
in a flash,
but still enough
to capture the moment

To make you sigh,
“Oh, what a sight”.

I wrote this one while I was thinking about all the beautiful things in the world and imagining what it would be like to be as awe-inspiring, if only for a fleeting moment.
