Voices

Voices near and far away

Clouding the issue,

Clarifying confusion.

Constant sentinels in my mind.

 

Questioning doubt;

pressured praise;

hesitating approval;

undermining contempt.

 

Hope’s release.

Love’s embrace.

Faith’s trust.

 

Battling for attention,

each makes a bid

for my heart.

 

Whom will I believe?

Which will gain my attention?
