Welcome to Verse First, where simple notions prompt amazing poems.
Mary Oliver begins her poem, The Journey, with these lines:
One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
their bad advice~
In The Sun Watches the Sun, Serbian poet Dejan Stojanovic says:
We hear only our own voices,
still echoes returning to our emptiness
Rainer Maria Rilke said:
"Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night."
And of course, 'Til Tuesday gained fame with the lyrics,
keep it down now
What do they say to you? What do you want to say about them? What influence do you want those voices to have in the world?
