Not This Time (Won't Ignore It)

There's a whisper in the back of her mind, a voice so small she's not sure it's really there. It's like a part of her consciousness, only it seems intent on telling her to do the exact opposite to what she's been using most of her energy to do.

A contradiction of sorts, it's too fleeting a thought to be ignored. Once in her mind, it is stuck there and goes about tormenting her.

It is truth and it speaks truth; it wants her to believe that. It is the voice she should follow if she wants to ever have her hearts' most strong desires come true.

And she finds that she doesn't want to push it aside. Is it not time she does something for herself/ Is it so wrong of her to yearn after something (someone) and go after it (him)? Is it?

For so long she has thought it has been. But now she's not so sure.

Perhaps the quiet whispering is a wake-up call. If that's the case, it is only right that she listens to it and follows it. She has ignored the same little voice far too many times in the past and it has only brought her regret. Not this time.
