listen to her

inside of you,

that constant voice

knows you better 

than anyone else.

 

she’s been there

when no one else was.

she knows she’ll never

steer you wrong.

 

she’ll direct you forward, 

& retract you 

from uncomfortable situations.

no matter if they say otherwise, 

listen to her.

 

friends know a side of you,

your lover knows another,

but she knows all of you;

all of your inner workings

shaping your heart 

and points of view,

listen to her.

 

when the night is still,

when you’re in the midst

of looking across the room

but you’re 3,000 miles away, 

listen to her.

 

she’s there to keep you

grounded yet dreaming,

enjoying yet wishing

that soon all will be right.
