(1844 - 1930 / England)

Battle Of My Demons

As I battle my demons
Inside of me
I have to comprehend each part of me
I must explore my fears
And hear
When they talk to me

As I battle my demons
I must remember to close the gates
To prevent anymore from entering
When I get a grip of why I am weak
I can strategise of how to conquer them all

I am taking a trip down reminisce lane
To jiggle my recollection of when I met
Each one of them
What was the attraction?
How was the friendship formed?
How could I not recognise
Their common quality of vice

Now I wish I had a tool to measure
before giving up my golden treasures
Who betrayed me?
I need answers
And I need them fast
I have to conquers my demons
I ought to do that fast
What ocean are they buried in
How far do I have to dive?
Oh! you wicked demons


I am ready and steady
I have got the strength
to go to any length
I am tired of your presences
Be prepared for a battle
From me
Of my worthy self
