Internal Voices

When I look in the mirror,

who do I see?

I see someone I do not like,

and who will he grow to be?

 

I see someone who is fragile,

someone who is blind;

blind to what the others see,

to all but the internal voices in his mind.

 

The voices scream and yell,

saying "You're not good enough",

they're as loud as a Church bell,

echoing "You're going to Hell".

 

It took some time for me to look at myself,

the skin and bone I possess,

to silence the voices deep within,

because I am truly blessed.

    SOCIETY* ITSELF IS PSYCHOPATHIC IN ITS NATURE ! THEY ALWAYS ARE THE VOICE TELLING THOSE WHOM WOULD BE THEMSELVES : AS THEY SO ARE : TO GO TO HELL ! SOCIETY* AS SUCH = IS A KINDA HELL ! BE YOU : DON'T BUY INTO THEIR BS! THE VOICES OF SUCH : ARE SILENCED*: BY WAY OF THE EXPLORATIONAL EXPRESSION OF LIFE* THAT YOU SO ARE !

BECOMING = THE EXPLORATION* OF THE POSSIBILITIES of BEING - HENCE = THE INTRINSIC NATURE OF {LIFE} = [INFINITY] ! IS MAINTAINED ! [THE UNKNOWABILITY* of LIFE = THE INFINITY* OF LIFE] ! (QUITE A TRIP* - TO SAY THE LEAST!)* HEY ! KEEPS IT ALL INTERESTING !!!
