Can you feel them?

Can you feel them?
Pulling?
Tugging?
Can you feel them?
Pushing?
Whispering voices in your
Ear
Telling you things you
Really don’t want to hear
They say
You are ugly
You are
Mean
You are
A horrible human
Being
These
My friend
Are the
Voices
Every
Child
Encounters
At one
Point in
Their life
These are
The voices
Built upon
Insecurities
Fear
Of being alone
Fear
Of being set apart
From the rest
You do not want
To hear them

The voices
In your head
But here we go again,
Here they come
My friend,
Again
