When I look at myself in the mirror,
A Demon has taken my place.
It rises in my throat to roar its hatred
And I am powerless to stop it.
The demon in me devours souls,
Consumes happiness, and eats light,
Until nothing remains but a shell of
What was once there.
He hungers for life, thirsts for destruction, and
I scream for him to leave me,
But he is having too much fun.
I face him in the absence of light.
He is stronger than me, but I am determined.
A light shines on the horizon as we stare each other down.
He shrivels in the morning sun, screaming, trying
To stay alive! I do not yield!
I do not succumb to His tempting darkness
I have let rule me so long.
The sun is rising,
He is dying.
I am Free.
