A Voice Inside My Head : Funny Poem

Updated on September 29, 2016

There’s a voice inside my head who wants me to listen.

I cannot help but hear her every contradiction.

She’ll be there when I wake and ready to start the day.

She’ll be there when I need to sleep and will not go away.

She tells me things I already know, sometimes the contrary.

She points out my mistakes. She makes feel so weary.

I do not want to, but I cannot help but listen.

She is there to talk me through every decision.

She will always tell me what I should have done or where to go.

Always there to nag me with her every, “I told you so”.

Maybe I should not fight her and let her have her way.

Maybe if I would listen she would go away.

I can recall so many times that I didn’t listen;

When she told me how to make a very difficult decision.

Though it pains me to admit that the voice was right;

Some things would have worked out better if I’d taken her advice.

Oh yes, that voice inside my head. I hear it all the time.

No, I do not think I’m crazy, because the voice is mine.
