Two Voices

That voice

That voice that goes on and on about everything wrong with me

Leaving feelings of worthlessness

Leaving thoughts that would hurt the people I care about

Thoughts that would cause grief and sorrow

Thoughts that would lead a soul to damnation

Then a new voice started to speak over it

This voice said how loved I am

It said how precious I am

It said that I have a purpose here

And that purpose had not been fulfilled

The first tried to overpower the second

But the Second spoke louder each time

Saying words that lift my spirits

Giving me motivation to keep going
