I had a tiny voice inside my head, said something which I read long back
The best time to do something is now
So I ask me self, what is it that I want to do right now
Write, You Lazy Ass, said me voice
So here I am, staring at this blank white box
Wishing I could do something more than this vain attempt at poetry
While me voice scoffed, twinkle in her eye, You and poetry, me gonna sit down and watch you try
In defense I say, writing has come a long way, Poems are not just rhyming words these days
Mocks me voice, loud and clear, Yeah Yeah if you say
Fuming, I brush her aside, focus on the subject that got me started in the first place
If the best time to do something is right now, why is it that people shy?
Really, now! says me voice. You ask this, when on countless occasions YOU never took a step ahead in life?
Ok, I get this. I failed. Not once, but quite a number of times
Guess I’m too scared of what would happen next
Guess I’d feel guilty of changing course of this peaceful life, one act, one question at a time.
But then, what if things wouldn’t turn out to be bad, as you think it would, questioned me voice
And I say, Oh jeez, guess you’re right. They may not actually. Never thought like that. In case it does, then?
To that, me voice says, Well, then the best time to solve something gone wrong would be now too, wouldn’t it?
Hmmm, am impressed, I think aloud, happy that I found an answer to question that I wasn’t sure of
Pat comes the reply, Ofcourse you would be, cause am the voice you would never say
Dammit, me voice is more thoughtful than me….sigh!!
