(Dedicated to my birth mother.  May my voice forever be louder than the demons you face daily. My love shall overcome them I promise.)

Voices soft and loud

Voices only she can hear

Voices won’t go away

Voices make her feel scared

Voices tell her they’re going to hurt her

So she runs far far away

Voices lead her to new strange people

Voices tell her not to trust those people

Voices tell her to not take those pills

But she takes them anyway even though the voices scream, “Poison!”

Voices she says are slowly starting to go away

Voices she no longer hears

Just the doctors, counselors and my voice is all she hears
