Voices In My Head

January 1999

My mother
Never knew nothing
About life or the voices in my head
That whirl around like a hornets' nest or
The blackberry colored cloud of despair that tells me to go jump
	off
	a
	cliff
I've survived by forgetting
The nonsense my mother taught me
I've learned those voices are my friends

	 -- Richard K. Anderson


Richard K. Anderson was a participant in a writing workshop sponsored by Body Positive
