Poem: Voices within

By: Neelam Singh


I hear voices,
Voices within!
Some are clear and some in vain
I try to hear but the chaos therein
I hear voices, yes voices within!

The magnetic lunatic world around me offers frenzied voices
Alas it overpowers my voices from within!
Looking around, I try to hush the world outside
Maybe I will get a bit of peace inside!

Trying to liaise with the messages sent from my soul
I need to comprehend through the muffled sounds
The worldly voices get louder and louder each single day,
Drowning the voices within which I need to understand!
I seek silence; hopefully one day the world would be still
Then maybe I would hear the exact voices from deep within!
