The Voice

The voice

in your head

is not

your friend,

it criticises you

for hours on end.

Dare you show

signs of independence,

it will not wait long

to seek its vengeance.

Nothing you can do

will meet its approval,

any change of plan

will end in refusal.

It has been with you

as long as you can remember,

and now you find

that it is easier to surrender.

  1. What is so very sad is that the voices in my head tell me I am great, but it is the voices of people who tear my down. And this has been going on for as long as I remember I just put myself down automatically. To preempt the shit that people say. And… so long as I put myself down, they don’t.

      1. Thank you. It’s just so hard… to remember my voice. Because that voice learns to mimic the voices around it. You know?


  2. The voice in your head can be controlled, and more important can turn you into another person. It’s you who chose what to do with those voices, it’s you, the one and only master.
