Poem: The Voices Inside Your Head

The Voices Inside Your Head.

The voices in your head lie.
You are beautiful,
skin and soul alike.

The voices in your head lie.
Whatever you think you cannot do,
you can.

The voices in your head lie.
You are loved
by everyone except yourself.

The voices in your head lie,
no matter how loud they scream,
or how long, or how persistently,

They lie, and their lies
have only the truth
you give them.


The picture was taken in Botetourt County, Va, at Lord Botetourt high school. You can click on it for a larger version.

Wonderful, and very powerful piece.
Those voices can be LOUD at times.
Love the snap too.

I hear the echoes of Julia Cameron...I think she has a new book...not sure of its topic.
I really like this poem.
Peace be with you in the coming year!
