Sadie Forgets Her Inner Voice

Sadie was forgiving

She was open-minded

In fact Sadie was so accepting

She forgot about

Her own inner compass

Until

Being swayed by

Any wind that came her way

She found herself

Facing

The completely wrong direction

Instead of being

“Laid Back Sadie”

Sadie had become

“Sadie With No Back”

So limp

Piled in a corner

Where all she could see

Was one white wall

Signifying her complete and utter

Destruction

What had begun as

A well-meaning gift

Had become the path

To Sadie’s emptiness

While Sadie had been open

To what others had to say

She had forgotten

That small voice inside herself

That was also a strong guide

Until she faced the wall

In such a strange place–

The place of peace without any grace

Wishing for the warmth

Of what she knew was right

Sadie then remembered

To look toward her own light

For while Sadie liked to listen

To what others had to say

It was when Sadie listened to her self

That she would see a glistening day.
