Inner Voice [A Short Poem]

What is that “inner voice”?

I never understood it

But it recently dawned on me

It’s that voice where you mouth the words but

keep your lips shut

Talking, mouthing your thoughts

Narrating

Or telling you what to do

Or criticizing you

Talking to itself like a schizophrenic

It’s only known itself

But it’s comfortable

And sometimes doesn’t make sense

Because it’s safe in there

And non-accountable

So should I listen to that inner voice?
