Poem: Unwanted Soundtrack To A Life.

Unwanted Soundtrack To A Life.



Once again I listen

To the insistent voice

That is my lifelong companion.

Every act of faith I compose

Is commented upon at length

By it’s unwelcome accompaniment.

It is hard to continue

Because of the quiet criticism

And wilful discouragement

Of this other darker self

And it’s insistent persuasion

Which revokes my brightest days.
