Voice of My Guardian Angel -- or Is It True - Me?: A Poem

Val enjoys writing rhymed poetry with a valuable message in it.


When you focus on your journey, you will be blessed with guardian angel to direct your path.

-- Lailah Gifty Akita

Is it a guardian angel or intuitive mind

that always rushes to let me know

when a crappy thought of any kind

intrudes to hijack my happy inner show.

Once in a dream I won a big jackpot

but before I rushed to spread good news

that voice spoke in my dream: "You did not"

but O.K., I didn't win big -- but neither did I lose.

As I am walking and just looking around

suddenly I look down ahead of my feet

it's just a tiny ant racing on the ground

don't kill it, tells voice from back seat.

It wakes me up at the time decided night before

never failing to make me wonder, but all in vain

what is that voice that I would never ever ignore

that's operating somewhere far beyond my brain.

Sometimes I philosophize -- it's the true - me

that never sleeps for he doesn't need to rest

brain/body just all that I could physically be

just driven on my path to become my best.

This studious curiosity with no ambition

one that's just good for a mindstyle to lead

so far from pretending to be on some mission

but merely expressing this humble peculiar need.

Every so often I say thanks to that voice

it's my "imaginary friend", or aren't we one

it's been guiding me into every prudent choice

I hope us to unite before my earthly self is done.
