The Voice

You are the voice in my head that says,
“Why didn’t you do better?”
and no reason is sufficient.

You are the voice in my head that says,
“This is your fault!”
all my actions have malicious intent.

You are the voice in my head that says,
“You are a burden.”
When did my basic needs become selfishness?

You are the voice in my head that says,
“Your pride will be your downfall.”
I don’t have a shred of confidence left.

You are the voice in my head that says,
“How do you think you’ll make it?”
adding discouragement to doubt.

You are the voice in my head that says,
“You are lying even to yourself!”
I cannot know truth or reality.

You are the voice in my head that says,
“You’re just the exception.”
I am alone, an anomaly.

You are the voice in my head that says,
“You brought this on yourself.  You deserve this.”
Why escape?
