These words echo…

Demeaning words,

“You aren’t good enough!”

 

Criticising laughs,

“You’re a fool for thinking you could be tough!”

 

Piercing smirks,

“You’re going to slip and fall and never be able to get back up!”

 

So much noise,

You wish it would just all stop.

 

If only you had a remote with buttons to lower the volume,

Or better still mute everything up.

 

You could walk away to be in a more silent place,

Far from all these things being said.

 

However, these words echo,

Even in an empty room.

 

Have you forgotten?

 

You welcomed them in,

And here they will remain,

Embedded in your head,

Until you yourself find the courage,

And discard of them for good.

 

Only then will you see change,

And surely you’ll find your true happiness again.
