The Voice

There is a voice inside of you,

That whispers all day long.

It’s beautiful and independent and oh so powerful,

It’s stronger than a lions heart.


I admire the decisions you make,

I admire your grit and determination.

I admire your eyes and that cute little smile,

I admire your ambition and that feisty laugh.


I don’t know what it’s like to be you,

Trudging through that storm inside.

But I’ll tell you what I am certain of,

Something I figured in our time apart.


You are a special human being I recognise,

One who’s just unaware of her might.

Your lethal combination of beauty and brains,

Is what sets you apart.


And I haven’t even mentioned your vibe yet,

Your ever radiating happiness and confidence,

I wish I could elaborate the effect it has on me,

Puts me at ease and makes me feel secure.


There will come a day when you’ll actually realise your worth,

Become aware of all the good things you deserve.

And when that day comes I’m afraid I won’t make the cut,

And that we’ll grow apart is what makes me insecure.

  1. I really enjoy your writing. It feels like you’re writing about someone you love who has mental illness. It’s interesting to see poetry about mental illness (or at least with shared themes) written from the perspective of a loved one rather than the one suffering. I write about my mental illness, so I find this really interesting. Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to reading more

    1. Yes this is a person I love and I don’t know if they have an illness. It’s more like they’re just attracted to certain level of toxicity.

      Also, thank you so much for your kind words. They inspire me to write more 🙂

  2. Definitely can relate with s dear friend of mine. I might just have to share this with her as you sum things up perfectly. We don’t need to be their heroes, but we do want them to appreciate a view of themselves they cannot see.

  3. I still adore this piece. Second time reading, revisiting 😉 it’s just so good. It’s incredible what beauty can be birthed from our heart’s inner emotion. Keep writing, & know when you do you are speaking deeply into many hearts & lives. 🙂
