My Own Personal Demon - a sestina


Poem Commentary

well i wrote this...i dont know why...but i did so enjoy it

My Own Personal Demon - a sestina

Everyone has their own personal demon
You never know when it will come out
And greet the world
Someday you are going to find
That behind every light, darkness
Is awaiting you

I will find you
Though you area a powerful demon
I will make it through the darkness
And have you come out
Soon you will find
There is no place for you in this world.

There is a world
That will be made just for you
It will be extremely hard to find,
You are my own demon
But soon you will come out
and meet the everlasting darkness

A very insightful write in to our own personal battles with our demons and the attitude we need to overcome them! Good job!

i like this idea as a poem,, it seemed to me to drift a little where i couldnt stay on track about it.. but thats prbly just me.. ... i most certainly know mine all too well, and i know when it started brewing inside, and i know when it came out, and it seemed i even beacon-ed it forthright, but ohhhh sk8er.. it was at the wrong time in my life, and it seemed to have screwed up a very big part of my love life:*(

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
