The Loudest Whisper

When someone yells at you its easy to see them as an adversary. When someone wears the face of a friend, its much harder to recognize the malice. The enemy is inside you, telling you the couch is comfortable, the work can be done tomorrow, the cookies taste delicious. Turn and face that whisper and shout back at it. Refuse to take the easy route. Just treat it like a shout and take that first step. Make that voice cower back in the shadows of your heart, knowing it will surely attack again tomorrow. But now you can focus on today.
