The little voice said,
“Are you gonna throw me away?”

The big voice said,

The little voice said,
“It’s just that
things seem so hard–
What if
I throw me away?”

The big voice said,
“I’ll take you out of the garbage can
and put you in a bathtub.”

The little voice
laughed. . .

and felt very good inside.

    I like the line where the little voice says “”What if I throw me away.?” well it’s a sad thought and I believe some os us always think about trowing their-selves when they feel hard. What we need is to find the bigger voice inside us to survive. I like how you simply write, and how you characterize the voices in us.

    Thank you for Sharing
