I sent my invitation 

to the voices in my head

Then emptied out my mind

to weigh on what they said


I’m musing my responses

I thought I would be fine 

But I’m falling out of kilter

at least one step behind 


I’m standing where I should be

But it’s empty space and time

And nowhere is a place 

Where there is no paradigm 


So is this a destination  

Or a train to distant shores

Is my mind a platform 

With an open carriage door


Do I listen to the voices

And relate to what they say

Or pull myself together 

And board the train today

The voices in the head come from the heart...follow them.

Also having the, "Inner voice," I would say, listen to them, then board the train anyway, then write down what they said and remind them who's boss. Great poem Desmond.

As one who argues with those incessant voices I so appreciated your words. Thank you for sharing.
