In Other Words- Voices

What is that I hear…… The whispers in my head

Voices which undermine my decisions and choices

Always a negative tone attached with hint of criticism

I shake my head to silent this cacophony of censure

Freeing myself to make my own way in the world

The prompt;

Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less
Use the picture and/or the word, voices as inspiration

In response to;

  1. I love the picture! It reminds me of the flattering starfish earrings on a movie I can’t remember the title of. They said things like, you are so pretty! Way to stand up for yourself!
    By the way, I’ve been posting blogs from my phone or notebook. I miss using a good laptop! (Don’t ask–the rant is too long!)

  2. I sometimes have to turn off the voice in my head to be free to hear the good stuff. With age, those negative voices have become fewer and infrequent. It is one of the good things that happen in growing old. Thanks for linking to In Other Words.
