I hear a distant voice calling.
Like an echo in the woods.
I pay no attention
But it keeps coming back
Like a poem’s refrain.
It’s telling me there is more.
That there is more than what I see all around me.
More to be done than simply satisfy my own selfish needs.
It’s telling me that I am so much more than this body of mine.
That I am so much more than my puny mind allows me to believe.
The voice is telling me that I have infinite potential
And great power as yet untapped.
It calls me to a more noble
And meaningful existence.
An echo in the woods…
Do you hear it?
