Within we hear...them...those voices...

Within we hear

them

those voices

inexplicable

uncaring

ruthless

overbearing

 

They lie

quietly

at the back

of our mind

in trying to silence them

they're the ones we can't find

 

Then the whispers

grow much louder

hissing, hating

weapon berating

We've lost our place

don't recognize our face

we carry on pretending

we don't feel disgrace

 

We shout in return

ashes remain, nothing to burn

our house still standing

it's door's demanding

we try to escape

there's no way out

the light is fading

the cold sets in

to fight the foe

to surrender

the sin?
