    The Demons

    I sit and fight my mind,

    Tapping my fingers, closing my eyes,

    as I try to resist

    These monsters, these demons...

    this sense of losing.

     

    The monsters from below,

    deep in my heart and my soul.

    You're not going to be anybody.”

    I hear them say.

    Get out of my head. Just stay away!

    I need to win, they can't control my life.

    when we're here, you'll always be fighting for life.”

     

    I look at my heart, weak and dying:

    Give me hope, those voices must be lying.

    But all they do is fight harder.

    Happiness, I will not feel.

    Please, God, make these demons not so real.”

    Then, they look me dead in the eye

    What's wrong? Believe us, we don't lie.”

    I will always be filled with sadness

    as my demons laugh at me, with smiles of gladness.

    This write took me back in time a decade or so, when I too was struggling with some serious demons of my own. Very uncomfortable poetry in it's own way, but it has this feel that it must be written and it must also be read. Excellent work.

    I don't think anyone will go through life without facing their demons at least once. Thank you very much

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

    Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
