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
