They Told Me To.

Mental illness is on the increase.No one really knows the cause.Just some thoughts on how it might feel.And I hate labels.

They Told Me To.

Voices whisper in my ear,
Wanting me to take their dare,
I know you're not really there,
Best to stay aware.

Telling me that I should begin,
Actions that will make them grin,
I will not be taken in,
By there ugly sin.

Relentless they continue on,
Get no rest until their gone,
They know that it wont be long,
Now submitting to whats wrong.

Pounding now inside my head,
Saying that they want me dead,
All these notions I'm being fed,
Fills me full of dread.

Lifting up that knife of steel,
Voices tell me how to feel,
Ending life is no big deal,
Do it now for real.

Someones knocking on the door,
As the blood begins to pour,
Hospital for me and more,
Journey that I've been before.

Patch me up as they do,
Questions soon will now ensue,
"What the hell is wrong with you",
The voices told me to.

Clearly I am deemed unstable,
Laying on the doctors table,
The voices won,I was unable,
Wear schizophrenic label.
