Voices in my head tell me I can't.

Voices in my head,

Voices in my mind,

Words never unsaid;

Words that are unkind.

“You cannot do it”, they say to me,

The things I want I’ll never be.

So confounded and insecure,

A hazy future that’s obscure.

Because I can’t get out of my shell,

My comfort zone is a living hell.

To be “strong” is what I pretend,

To mask the things I can’t amend.

Because this world was designed,

To battle forces that are malign.

I cannot do it; the voices rule,

To think I can makes me a fool.
