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
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
