The voices in your head

The voices in your head. They're not your voice. They're sounds you've borrowed that are doing an impression of you. They're bad wisdom. They're the voices of others shouting their bad advice, with their machinations, hollowness, treachery. They're no more you than the advertising jingles for waffles or chewing gum that recur unbidden and bewitch like sirens. In the silence is a voice that is yours, but all others must be silenced first. Drop the foppery once and for all.
