THE INNER VOICE

What is weakness failing
And being overpowered by strength goes away, finally

What is sadness fading
And being put down by happiness, is forced to show its face less

What is stupidity let down
And being handed a promissory note by wisdom, sinks

What is doubt thrown aside
And being tossed by confidence, has to hide behind a corner

What is self-unacceptance stomped on
And being stood on by self-acceptance, slowly dies

What is procrastination not put off, until tomorrow
And being told to finish by today, is complete

What is hopelessness broken
And being overcome by hope, fails

What is silence listened to
And being heard, reveals the inner voice
