Once before when I was young
I heard something whisper inside
A little sound so silent
Yet it sounded like a scream
From a memory
that belonged to a dream.
I thought I had lived
I heard a silent scream inside
That I wasn’t really alive
And I might as well be dead.
Said a little voice inside my head.
I didn’t know what it meant
Not once long ago I listened
I just ignored the words I so resent.
I refused to listen to that little voice
I went against the silent little noise.
Once before I knew I had to go
Get away from the path that my mind told me so
But I was so stubborn that I ignored
The little call that started long before
A whisper that there was one other door.
Once before I knew I took the wrong road
So I reaped what I have sowed
Had I listened to that little voice
I would’ve known
That I should’ve grown.
A really long time ago
I have loved someone so
But I was left with a broken heart
So I decided to let go…
and tried to make a new start.
Once before I knew I had to listen
To the whispers of my heart then
But I was troubled and instead
I ignored the little voice that said
I should follow my heart and not my head.
Once before I tried to finally move on
But all the reasons were wrong
And it took me quite so long
To finally see what was in store
Behind the litte voice that opened another door.
Once before I thought I had it all
So I became deaf from the call
That life is more than what I could see
That so much more was in store for me
If only I would let myself be free.
But I was scared to leave my comfort zone
And live the life unknown
Too scared to be alone
Till I was pushed to survive
The world that I thought was alive.
Once before, not long ago
It wasn’t as hard as I thought to let go
To travel the road less travelled
And then there was silence
I know I had made the right choice
Because I never heard again from my little voice.
