Voices


I am walking through the valley
I am walking through the dark
It feels like He is a million miles away

My fears threaten to overtake me
My faith threatens to wither
It feels like I am drowning

Voices in my head condemn me
Voices in my head berate me
It feels like I am worthless

There is a light however
There is a beautiful path ahead
It feels like there is hope

My steps come easier
My steps come with purpose
It feels like there is promise

A voice in my head encourages me
A voice in my head comforts me
It feels like He is with me
