Voice voice everyday
Degrading demeniring is all I hear
Put downs let downs your never good enough
Painful memories being put down escalation in my mind
Voices trying to destroy me fighting them as best I can
My strength my strength is all I got
I think over and over again is it enough to bare with this
Fists up or knifes out which is faster to slice them out "the voices in my head"
How fast can I run I run and run they always seem to catch up with me when I can no longer run
Voices in my head causing emotional damaging trauma
Starting to picture everything making me numb
Is this real when will it stop is it me are these real
My mind won't stop its always on the run a racing mind is a crashing mind
Get away I gotta get away from my triggers of which start the voices in my head
Enough enough I've had enough shut them up shut them up but all fails its the wars in my head from when I was a kid
Turning against me all against me
Telling my self when is enough enough when will you ever be done
The voices in my head
Are these voices real

Tim -

those voices are not real.
they are echoes of the past.
if you listen closely, you will find that they sound just like your abusers:
same words, same phrases, same tone, same emphasis.
if it does sound like your own voice,
it is only because you were trained
to accept their lies without question
and you are parroting what you heard so many times.
oppose them, replace them, drown them out with your own truth.
tell yourself the opposite of their lies.
and believe your own truth.
it was not your fault.
you did not deserve it.
you are valuable in yourself.
you are acceptable.
you are good enough.
you are worthy of being loved and protected.
