…..It took so long for it to happen
Too long

They (she) used their influence for so long to help her end it

She needed to end it

Voices always plagued her
Telling her to take her life

Take some pills
close your eyes in the car
Let yourself drift down in the water
Walk right off the ledge

There was an urgency in this desire
She could not explain it
She tried to get help
To silence these voices
The ones that sounded just like her
but with different accents
From different times

Doctors gave her pills
Therapists gave her advice
her voices gave her answers

They would not let up
They knew the future
They knew of reincarnation
They knew her origin and who she really was
What she would do to the Earth if she reached a certain age
Who her father was

She rubbed her numbered birthmark as she saw the souls of her past
It was her
From before
She would now join them
To help stop her future self

Before all is lost…….
