I am the Voice that told you to kill
I am the Void that weakened your will
I am the Creature pulling you in
The darkest of things that bring you to grin
Toil and work however you may
Attempts to shirk me will bear no success
I am the fiend that was here from the start
The unending pain that has hardened your heart
I am the aching, the strife, and the sweat
The bones that are breaking, never to set
I’ve spread my roots, growing where I choose.
My poison fruits scattered ‘round
Kill me or stop me
In any way you can.
For I am the Monster
Inside the Man.
