Accepting Darkness

Hide your inner demons as they isolate you from this world, tell all the people you hate them as your self-righteous Flags unfurl 

Look to strangers for salvation to save your mortal soul,cry out they control and they torment me if lying is your goal 

Those demons they are a part of us and your sins belong to you, to exorcise your demons is to tear yourself into 

We are none all cloaked in darkness and none all bathed in light, good and evil live inside all of us side by side like day and night

I feel them lashing out at me you shout knowing it's untrue, you tear at your insides ashamed that you know that they're a part of you 

So blame your own shortcomings when your hands are full of blood, you relished that storm of emotion you cherished that Feral flood

You lie with both pen and paper as your sins you do confess, when you say it wasn't like me when you say it was the stress 

Stop trying to castrate yourself to be a better man, find the demon that's inside of you and take it by the hand 

Accept that little bit of Darkness as it accents all the light, uncage those things way down inside you that long to rule the night 

There will be no Beast of Burden if you accept both halves make whole, God put all of this inside you so Embrace and love your soul

    Good advice MD - - that last line did it for me - "There will be no Beast of Burden if you accept both halves make whole, God put all of this inside you so Embrace and love your soul " - A compelling and comforting read.

      Thank you Fay.
      It makes it all worth while when someone gets the point I've tried to make.
