I am awake like the clock’s never ending tick
I am a restless train of thought, running off the tracks
I am the voice inside you that burns at your core
You are powerless against my
You are divergent
You will never stop me
I am the fuel that burns at your fire
Listen… L i s t e n t o m e!
The voice inside you nags and natters in your brain
Everyone you know
thinks you are a horrid mess
The things that make you You
irritate them endlessly…
What do they REALLY think about you?
You will never find out
You are too cowardly to question
YOU know you do not need to be
to be successful…
So why bother trying?
It will follow you – you will never feel alone
In every breath and moment it torments you
I am right. I know all about you
You are wrong
like a child with an innocent curiosity to question
I will always be there for you
When all others leave
You will never be free — as long as you listen to me…
I am all you know
Why change that?
Why destroy our bond ?
These voices in your head pulling at your soul
Which is right – which is wrong?
Should I even listen?
Do you even want to?
The turmoil you create will be your downfall
Be the river
that was once a stream
Forge new beginnings
Encounter your milestones
Do not run from them
So let that voice inside you speak
listen to it
Imagine its perspective
but never let it engulf you whole
Anxiety is an energy
Feed its desires
Fuel its cruel intentions
Only you —
can smother it
Let those embers dissipate.
