VOICES. ( original Title)

Written by Freespirit4fr in 2007 (C)


Voices, voices in my head

Making me wish that I was dead

Please can no one help me find

A truly peaceful state of mind.


Why do THEY have to come?

Just as I believe I am someone

Please oh please help me here

I dont want to hear these voices so clear.


When I think all is okay

My mind makes me feel the decay

Of my life that I did once enjoy

I no longer want to be their whipping boy.


Lord show your mercy to me

help me a new way to see

I really am trying to set it right

I won't give in without a fight.


Voices, Voices in my head

Making my nights ones to dread

There is a way to freedom from my plight

I will find it...this ray of light.


I believe that God will show

Just what He wants me to know

I shall be prepared and listen

Because, you see, I trust HIM so.


Voices,Voices in my head

Making me wish I was dead

But I have so much more to give

To my family...so help me to live.
