The Voice
by: Anonymous

How do I stop it?
This war going on in my head
The voice that constantly reminds me

of all my faults
all the problems I've caused

The voice that makes me question my every thought and feeling
The voice that challenges any rationalization I make
to condone my behavior
to validate my existence

Guilt and fear consume me at all times
Making me afraid to eat
Afraid to trust
Afraid to live

If ever I find myself in a moment of pleasure,
a moment of weakness
The voice crowds my head
Telling me that I am undeserving
It catapults me back into my world of self-imposed torment
One that I know and deserve
A world where I belong

That is why it's so hard to argue
because the voice is right
I created this hellish place for myself
because I don't deserve better

This is normal
This is how it's supposed to be
This is me
