Never Free

There are these thoughts

thoughts that float around

I have no control over them

I have no ability to chase them away

I am held captive

in my own head.

These voices are vicious

once talons have hooked my soul

they come for me

telling me

I have no worth

I have no power

I have no chance

I have nothing.

Striving to return to sanity

to blanket

to silence

the voices in my head

resigned acceptance

they will only retreat

returning always

chiseling away at fragile ego

I shall never be free.
