I used to walk around with these wary eyes when I was a child, the world I was in was a scary place and I didn’t feel like staying for long…

A voice found his way inside my head, at first I was so afraid…

Then more came and screamed, I didn’t understand, I withdrew from the world around…

They used to whisper rubies in my ear and I drew blades across my skin…

One voice told me I had forgotten how to fly, so I climbed so high as I could get, but the police came and carried me down…

They took me away, and locked me up, I was so confused, I didn’t think I belonged in that place…

They told me I was very sick and would never be sane again, but gave me a handful of colorful pills, if I just took these I would get so much better, but this was a great big lie…

I walked around with grey dead eyes and I got cold and more and more round…

I didn’t think I would ever feel anything again, but then I met a soul who burned so clear with energy and fire, she held my hand and guided me to where I needed to go…

I started to meet what came to be my family and they taught me not to be afraid of the voices, and how to listen and understand…

They showed me how to fly again…

Now I have the first voice left, and he is my friend…

He helps me and advises me and I couldn’t fly without him…

I am taking less and less of the colorful pills, and I can feel me and the world again…

The world seems to be a much more beautiful place, and I want to find my place in it…
