the saddest thing i ever heard ?
was my own mind speaking these words
of condemnation, blame and shame
a guilty verdict full of pain
the constant chatter in my brain
could slowly drive someone insane
and when i tell it to just – stop! ?
it mocks me and repeats that thought
the more i try to not tune in
the voices reach a loud cruel din
like leaves that swirl through gale force winds ?
the thoughts descend on me and win
common distractions make things worse
is this a self-fulfilling curse?
maybe they’re right and this is true
the things i am are my issue
there is no more horrific fate
than these relentless thoughts – self-hate
but then i ask them to expound ❓
and strangely were no answers found
i let it chatter on and on
and slowly surely they were gone
the caucus started to abate.
there was no logic to the hate
and then i realize i control
the things i think that touch my soul
a lovelight started breaking through ❤️
a love that only speaks what’s true
of grace and beauty cherished one –
of worthiness beyond the sun ?
the loudest thing i ever heard
were things UNSPOKEN here in words. ?
