Voices start to ring in your head
Tell me what do they say
Distant echoes from another time
Start to creep in your brain
So you play madness like it’s convenient
You do it so often that you start to believe it
You have demons so nobody can blame you
But who is the master and who is the slave?

— Madonna, "Voices" —

DISCLAIMER: No, I don’t hear voices. But this song always makes me wonder what my father heard when he suffered from schizophrenia.

    I understand. L does hear voices.
    “Then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.”-John 5 :8 niv
    It’s pretty much what I’ve had to do.
    You will be OK Marissa. I understand your fear of Schizophrenia more than you know. Not because you fear who your father was, but because you love him and he left too soon. I understand you don’t want that in the worst way.
    Do not worry. You are a wonderful person, and you have a reason to be here, remember God wrote your story from end to beginning. Thus, you can rest in that knowledge.
