Mean voices


These mean voices
In my mind, Lord,
Date back
To my anxious childhood.

These rough put-downs
In my heart
Began, Lord,
In my painful youth.

These harsh judgements
In my soul:
I heard them
From my damaged parents.

Heal their spirits,
And these voices,
With your love, and peace,
And truth.
