The Monster Inside the Man

Connor Davey

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.
