These Voices

These Voices short poem

Photo by Damian Gadal

These voices in my head they haunt me
And taunt me
They tell lies
To try and tie my emotions down

My selfishness tries to get the better of me but I can’t let that be
Was sick of people telling me what I couldn’t achieve
But I have to say I disagreed
I proved them wrong
Wrong that they ever doubted me

I try to resist the whispering temptations that my brain has created
Why does it make me so bitterly deflated
Why do we all have to act like dogs
It’s like a thick fog covering all our views
Hopefully I’ll find my dreams, dreams that will surely die

You ask about these tears These tears I cry…. Rolling down my face With every heave and sigh For a dying world Drowning in misery And hate ……These tears I cry For the lonely, The dying and The socially displaced
