The Voice In You is a poem written by Regine Balangyao and shared with The Ugly Writers under the theme Finding Your Voice for the previous month
The Voice In You
What happened to the voice in you?
I wonder if it’s still there or hidden in an igloo
I wasn’t expecting such an obvious clue
But the thought of it surely chasing you in blue
Do you still consider the tiny voice within?
Or are you still in doubt about whether it’s there or if it’s just a nightmare?
Think of a place that you consider quite rare
The voice you’re looking at might be buried right there
Have you ever heeded what the voice pleaded?
Or even glance an eye at her screed?
Pause for a while and hear how the voice bleeds
Maybe her screams are something you really need
Finding Your Voice is the successor to our fan-favorite theme from 2019 Inner Strength which featured a lot of great poets and writers
