Oh My!

Thanks t'you, Blue Girl! I'm So Glad to've found this site!

There is a voice inside of you

That whispers all day long,

"I feel that this is right for me,

I know that this is wrong."

No teacher, preacher, parent, friend

Or wise man can decide

What's right for you -- just listen to

The voice that speaks inside.

BY Shell Silverstein


  1. So, you also hear the voices? :-)

    It's actually very true - nothing like a git feeling to lead you through the maze of life.

    I also liked this one a lot:

    Listen to the MUSTN'TS, child,
    Listen to the DON'TS
    Listen to the SHOULDN'TS
    Listen to the NEVER HAVES
    Then listen close to me--
    Anything can happen, child,
    ANYTHING can be.

  2. love the poem...i want to print it and post it up in my classroom!

  3. I used to actually read Shel Silverstein as a kid, but don't recall this one... Thanks!
