I've ammassed many demons in this life, it seems
They visit me while awake and often in my dreams
I once thought to ignore them, to pay them no heed
But it seems this was a bad choice, very bad indeed
I gathered them all up and locked them away from me
Sealed tightly in my brain, and threw away the key
One day they got out  burst free like a volcanic eruption
The price I paid was tremendous, for my own deception
They wreaked havock on my mind, splintered my soul
Hell bent on destruction centered as my goal
A gentle hand came, and then there was light
It began to soothe my wounds, and encourage me to fight
It's still not over, the journey has just begun
But know I think it is a battle that can some how be won
Sometimes it is hard, the demons bear such power
And they seem to come to me in my darkest hour
They torture and torment, slice deep into me
They laugh at the notion that I could ever be free
But I know now that they want me to give in
Because my demons are afraid this is a battle I will win
So, come on demons, come what may
I'll simply deal with you day by day
And in the end victorious I'll stand
All from the touch of one loving hand




 Mystical being
which makes ink flow
Surround me in
your incandescent glow
Fill my brain with
thoughts and rhyme
As I try to capture
but a moment in time
~Shan~
