Inner Demons

The battle lines have been drawn, sides have been chosen, the armies are being gathered. As the song says, "better go get your armor". Valleys are going to be flooded with the blood of many, many tears will be shed over those that are lost. But, there won't be any winner in this battle as it has been and will be raging on for years. The enemy has been sighted and is known. Seeing them up close and personal, they are demons. Things that are hard to fight and disperse.

Everyone fights these demons, no matter who they are or what they say. We all have them and fight them almost on a daily basis. Some are victorious and can over come them, fighting them back to where they belong. But many others have fought them for years, and many others have lost their lives to these demons. These demons come in all shapes and sizes and for each person, they are different in many ways. Some can fight alone and win. While others need the help of others.

You can see them clearly in the dark as they are there always watching. The light of day brings some relief but they are still there, watching and waiting for the darkness to fall again to attack. They love to come when you are sleeping. Entering your mind when you are most vunerable, when the walls are down. But, they don't come from the outside world. They come from the inside, inside of us all. They are our inner demons.

Thank you for taking some time to read through my writings. I hope that you were able to take something away with you as you leave. Always kiss the person you love when you part, you never know if it will be the last kiss.
