    I created them
    They are my own
    Yet I know nothing of them
    They are strangers within
    Inside my own body they live
    Living as if they were real
    Using my body to live
    These strangers within
    It is a struggle
    Often we fight to live
    To gain control of my body
    Against the strangers within
    I'll often lose
    Or even give up
    Giving entire control
    To these strangers within
    When things are too hard
    And I cannot take it anymore
    I find a hole to hide inside my head
    Giving to the strangers within
    What happens now I don't know
    I'm unaware
    Yet I come around to find myself in deep ****
    Because of my strangers within :happens:

    the strangers within
    has me thinking their my best friends

    have me reclusive so alone
    has me staying at home

    afraid to open my mouth
    foul things pour heavily from a invisible spout

    have me talking to myself even touching myself
    people who know me speaking a strange language has me falling deaf

    from the inspiration and hope they give
    they just want their baby girl to live

    to release the demons that held me captive
    the pleasant me tied down with shackles
    good things the Strangers Within seem to tackle

    like Mariah i got to Shake it Off
    be like Kirk Franklin and Stomp

    singing out I know I've been Changed
    lord save me cause the demons have me deranged

    help me to control, tame the

    Strangers Within

    this for you babygirl love your flow from Nevar:spinstar:

    It's that part of you that you want to kick to the curb, but how? I like the way you posed this, and yes I can relate.

    I cannot lie
    they share my name
    When people look at them they see me
    Yet I and them sometimes do not share a memory

    Peace
