A Conversation With Myselves (Pay No Attention To The Man Behind The Curtain)


I am so scared

This voice is overpowering

It is disempowering

I am cowering

I am crying

I am afraid


It stuffs my ears with promises of failure

And my dreams are lost through leaks in my eyes

Eyes that used to see the sky

But now the sky just makes them cry

Because it's so far away

I know I can't make it that far


This man behind the curtain

This voice inside my mind

He's stamped my forehead with an inadequacy guarantee

He has dismal mantras playing in my ear on repeat

The things he tells me I don't want to believe


“Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain

All he knows are lies

You my love shine brighter

Than all the stars in the sky

You are a radiant force to be reckoned with

You won't go down without a fight


I won't leave your side

Until you see

The angels that surround you, we

Are guiding you to the light.”
