Upon this ledge, my soul stood staring
Tired of the cries of injustice blaring
Needing to quiet my thoughts before I lose my sanity
There’s too much greed, cruelty, and vanity
Darkness threatens to overtake me
Daily I fight the demons within for all to see
Some days I feel like letting them win
Perhaps it would be easier to just give in
Tango with the monsters inside my brain
Let them sing that haunting refrain
At least I’d always have someone to talk to
The needs of the one outweigh the needs of the few
But somehow I find strength within
Each day, I let that fight inside me begin
He helps me get through each day
He’s with me always, every step of the way
I’m tempted to brush my teeth
And I also I want to eat S’mores
I’m tempted to go do the dishes
And I also want time crawl into bed
I’m tempted to scream at the top of my lungs
And I also want to cry for hours
I’m tempted to fight these demons
And I also want to let them win
Which part of me will win right now?
I do not yet know.
There are endless enemies among us, but there is often no greater foe than the demons that live within us.
Every single day is a battle against ourselves, fighting the evil that’s within us all. But make no mistake, even though sometimes we lose, it’s always worth the fight.
There’s much good within us too and to see it in play is an amazing thing. So I encourage each of you that feels like they’re struggling today to fight, fight to keep those inner demons at bay and let your good shine through. ♡♡♡
