Should I Listen?

Should I Listen?

When I shut off all sounds
      And there is nothing
Left to drown
      Out the nothing,
I can hear something.

I can’t help but wonder
      If the something
Is just more thunder
      I have to get past
To hear something else. . .
                        Something more?

Did my heart just shake,
      Or was what I felt
Only an earthquake,
      And not silent nor still
Enough to be true?

I breathe, taking it in,
      Letting it out,
We’re suppose to relax
      And let go.
Something says, “Get Up.”

Should I listen
      Or stay here and wait
Until I hear more?
