The Voices Within

(Day 2 of the November PAD Challenge)

They harass me
endlessly
incessantly.
Stealing my sleep,
Interrupting my dreams.
Concentration lost.
Focus—
I can’t.
They won’t let me
until I surrender
…to them.

My excuses pile up
too busy
committments more pressing.
I think at times I have
found peace
…from them.

But ever they return
Demanding to be heard.
Weary of resisting
I surrender,
at last,
and reach for the tools
to set them free.

With pen in hand,
they live at last.
