A Stranger's Voice

A stranger lives inside of me
One I do not know
He sees the things I cannot see
He often tells me so

I sometimes recognize his voice
It's one I've heard before
I listen 'cause I have no choice
A ghost I can't ignore

I pray for peace from day to day
But he will not hear my plea
He says that he is here to stay
He's become a part of me

He whispers things 'til late at night
My soul can find no rest
It's useless when I try to fight
But still I do my best

I've tried to kill this voice inside
My quill the weapon I use
But nothing helps, for all I've tried
I still can't silence my muse
