They are all in my head, all day and all night
I hear them talking, telling me something's not right
They come from all directions, my ears never rest
recalling words from the ones I thought I knew best

My family my friends, those closet to me, telling
me things I refuse to see.
They've been buried within so long and so deep
like angry little children refusing to sleep

Some yell loudly, some whisper soft
they speak of the times and the dreams that were lost
and all these times I've refuse to hear, from people
and places I held so dear.

I've been so let down, my pride has been shattered
My heart has been broken, as if I didn't matter
It's a harsh lesson these voices within
makes me realize I've only one true friend
Thank you lord for opening my eyes, to people
that hurt me and tell me lies.
God's comfort and love will pull me through
from all the bad things these voices do.

    thanks for your kind comments on my poetry, I have put your voices one in my favouraites, it is a great poem, and it reminds me of the voices that used to be in my head, people saying you fat your feets too big, you stupid, you mad, but when i found God he showed me how to tell them to clear off and how to listen only to his voice, if my sisters say I have big feet now OR That i am fat i'd say yes great all the better for stamping on satans' head anyway God bless you from diane
