We all hear the whispers,
that voice in your head
telling you what to do,
what not to do,
reminding you of the wrong you did
and the wrong done to you.
You think you’re standing
on your own two feet
but the voices are always there,
whispering in your ear.
You hear your mother, your ex-husband,
that boss you hated, the girl friend
who always told you to wake up
and fly right! You’re never alone
until the roof caves in. That’s
when you discover it’s just you
and no one else. That’s when the voices
go silent and everyone wants to hear
what you’ve got to say. That’s when
it’s time for the truth, time to speak up
and speak out, and be your own person,
a person who can ignore the whispers
and say what’s in your heart.
