This is a poem I wrote a couple of months ago as part of a course I facilitated. I think many of us lose touch with what really matters – and it’s so important to follow our hearts.

All the noise
Bruises her body
Can’t hear her heart
Doesn’t know what to do
Everyone has their views
Friends turn against her
Gone is the lightness
How can she find her way?
Inside of course
Just go in and listen
Know that only
Love is real
Her heart plays a tune
No one else can hear
Only she knows the way
Past the chaos, through the storm
Questioning everything
Realising truth
Stop
Take your time
Under the constructs
Very softly whispering
Why follow anything else?
Exist in this beauty
Yes! Her own compass
Zero in, follow nothing else
