We all have our demons
They can have a different name 
No matter what they’re called
They can drive us all insane

I’ve had my share 
Have a few right now 
But many years ago
I took this fervent vow

When l’m thrown on my knees
And fighting to the end
I say to myself
“I will never bend”

No matter what the time
No matter what the day
I am in control 
You go on your way

With this I do not say
I’m immune from being hurt
But years of many scars
I’ve learned how to revert 

When fighting through the pain 
When their attack’s the worst 
 I focus on my will 
 They will need the nurse 

At times It takes awhile 
To overcome the issue 
With writing-reading-sharing
Experience is my rescue 

There have been a few times 
When I thought would give in
But then I told myself 
I’m  in control  and I will win

Just this string of words
Have started the recovery process 
It opened the  door once more
To greet my friend SUCCESS 

When dealing with your demons
I hope you find your ways
There’s more than one right answer 
To leads to brighter days

  • This is written extremely well as I must say that the Gods are good and I'm really happy that you didn't let the demons win because you seem to be a good dude also nobody deserves to be overcame by demons because we were all made in the creators likeness and we are all his children...

  • This made me smile. It also reminded me of what i'm truly made of. Thank you for the trigger, Maurice. It couldn't have come at a better time for me. 💜
