The voice speaks with no face nor frame
It shouts
It beckons
It calls me by name
It swims in bottomless pools of mystery
It knows no boundries
And has no history
It just echoes it's montra
inside of my head...
Do not fear me
Or figure me
Name me
Or place me
I shall be with you in life
And stay till you're dead

The author's comments:
I had to do a research project on mental illness, and schizophrenia is a disease that caught my attention. I thought about how hard it much be to not know reality from what is in your mind. The Voice is inspired by this research.
