these voices

oh, dear one

we shall save our own lives

today and forevermore

days begin and days end

these voices

outside us

we hear

telling us what to do and not

how to be and how not to be

we listen then we suffer

we will mend our spirits from now on

we can’t help listening to their words

but we don’t have to listen intently

and no longer take them to heart.
