never to return,
Afraid and alone,
the right path never to be shown.
I've gone through and seen the worst ,
truly bringing my heart-a-burst.
Chased by demons stalking behind me,
it upsets me not even my family can see.
I wanted to leave this morbid world,
waiting to end it all
ready to plunge with a great fall,
ending all my pain.
But god would look down at me with shame
trying to convince me to turn wrong to right.
I ignored him and pushed him out of my sight
still struggling after all these years,
I need his advice to face my fears
I knew what I had to do,
God told me "Face your demons or they will try to face you".
So I went, looking for redemption,
not with a hint, having no good intentions.
There! I saw my demon lurking,
curious, I wonder "who is he?"
Out of the shadows there he was.
I could read him like a book,
he looked like me, only darker.
He looked and said "How interesting... you must face yourself.
You were your own demon all along."

- Comment from author about the poem: I wrote this during my time of depression that I was going through, I saw myself as my own demon that I had to face. Thanks for those who read my poems.
