"The Voices" - An original poem


Hey sweeties! Here's an original poem written by GL reader Lyza G. It's about bullying, and feeling live you're never good enough in today's society.  

 

The Voices

 

I don't know who I am anymore

My mind is pacing but I don't know what for

These shadows haunting me every step I take

Constantly reminding me of the smile I fake

But every time I close my eyes, there they are

Those voices emerging from the dark

 

If I could hide, I would

I'd listen to music about how life could be

Wondering sometimes if it’s only me

It'd give me the courage I needed everyday

I'd let it sing my pain away

Yet every time I close my eyes, there they are

Those voices emerging from the dark

 

Their cold hands force my lips shut

For that invisible blade, made another cut

Yet, even if I cried

It’d be as if I never tried

Then I'd give them my pride

My head that was once held high

I'd take that moment to sigh

Every time that I close my eyes, there they are

The voices are emerging from the dark
