Co-NNections Recovery Stories

Will I Listen


Will I Listen?

……………………………………………
               Will I listen? 

There’s a little fear inside,
Pestering me to worry.
Will I listen?

There’s a pang of anxiety,
Reminding me of any insecurity.
Will I listen?

There’s a measure of courage in me,
Allowing me to make progress.
Will I listen?

There’s an embryo of peace in me,
Counting on me to nurture it.
Will I listen?

Yes, I will always listen to myself,
As my growth can only occur,
When I hear my own heart’s crude effort at singing.

I hear you, and you are growing safe and so capable.
You are more confident and calm each day.
I will listen to you and love you.
