The Voices

If someone tells you you’re stupid
For long enough, eventually
You will believe it.

You might think you’re not
But the voices insist,
You will believe it.

Try and resist, shut out the sound,
Slam the doors on it, useless:
You must believe it.

Stupid, stupid, stupid,
Everything you do is wrong,
Believe it, believe it.

No, no, no, I’m better than that.
No you’re not, you’re stupid,
Believe it, failure, believe it.

We are right, not you,
You know nothing, stupid,
You will believe it.

The voices might stop
Their work done.
I believe it. Yes.
