Expeience Of Self - Poem by Kelly Kurt

That voice inside your head
A narration at times; at others, a dialogue
Most noticeable in the silence of solitude
But it is always there
You do not direct these thoughts
Nor in fact are you the author of any
Overlooked or disregarded, this is what is you
Clues to primacy, inklings of subconscious
Experience of self

Topic(s) of this poem: introspection, life

    Inklings of subconscious is an experience of self. We don't know but we expose ourselves in many ways and when one points out, here you are, we are shocked and we regret as to why we exposed our hidden self. A nice poem. (Report) Reply

    In meditation, I try to still these thoughts. Most of the time with little success.

    The voices in one's head.. Yes, that is one really complex thing. There are just so many voices inside there that it is hard to consider that we exist as some sort of unified self and not multiple numbers of them..

    A thought provoking poem. Thank you Kelly.

    Some people exhibit this outwardly (Multiple personality disorder)

    We call it thinking,
    Feeling?
    True, there's always something reeling,
    Subconsciously or consciously in our brain.
    Sometimes with soothing feeling,
    But others like a Bullet Train.

    So many things unknown, unanswered, out of our control. But one thing is for sure, Kelly's poems open new portals for us all and make us think in a most pleasant and amazing way. A talent possessed by very few.
    Thank you, Kelly

    What a marvelous and generous compliment. Thank you, Sandra. I am often quite attuned to this phenomenon. Most times it is very insightful, other times it is quite frightening.
