Voices. My own triology

May 14, 2020

i. Voices in my head,
But louder voices in my heart.
They're not anyone else's.
They are mine.
My different voices,
All telling me different things,
I'm listening to all of them
and none of them
at the same time.
Which should I listen to
If all of these voices are
My own.

ii. Which are worse
The loud voices in my heart,
That confuse me.
Or the whispering ones
That drive me crazy.

iii. Rude voices
Whispering to me,
But they are my voices,
Polluting my own thoughts
of myself,
My personality,
My self-image.
So it's harder
to silence them.
I felt inspired by this topic so I wrote 3 poems about the same theme because I didn't want to join them .So here you go! Hope you like 'em

    I really love the imagery in this, I understand how sometimes our own judgements are stronger and can take over our optimistic thoughts.

    I love this so much! I relate strongly.

    Replying: Aw! Thanks! I did write many chapters once upon a time, and am thinking about doing it again. Anything you'd want to see in particular?

    This poem is beautifully written! I can definitely relate to this on a personal level as sometimes our inner voice or our "inner critic" can be the toughest voice to live with. I love how you depict this struggle in such seamless language and rhythm. I especially love the lines "Which should I listen to / If all these voices / Are my own."
    Awesome job! :)
