My Inner Voice--By Emile Pinet--Canada

My Inner Voice (a sonnet)

I leave the daily hustle and bustle
of a city's cacophony of sound.
And go to where the leaves softly rustle
in the breeze... and no one else is around.

When I'm alone, I find an inner peace
that raises my soul to a higher plane.
And anxiety's attacks slowly cease
free from critical critiques and disdain.

Seclusion fuels imagination
shaping reality within my mind.
And it's a feeling of liberation,
unrestricted by rules of any kind.

Whenever I seek solitude by choice
I hush the whispers of my inner voice.

Emile Pinet was born in Bathurst, New Brunswick, Canada. Many of his poems reflect the uniqueness of nature, which he loves, and his poetic observations of life in general. Emile has been writing poems since he was about 35 years old (now 67). He decided to write down his ideas and express himself through his poetry.

  3. I love this poem Emile,
    We all have am inner voice. I can tell your inner voice comes
    from the holly ghost, giving you inner peace, which beats the inner voice of satan which tears at many souls.
