Inner Demon

“I am the thing that keeps you
fighting to stay alive.”

I am the keeper of darkness. The thing you confide in when you think no one else is listening. I am the whispers in your mind, reminding you of your every fault, your every flaw. Your every weakness. I am the thing that goes bump in the night, though you never actually hear me creeping up behind you.

I am the keeper of darkness. The thing that knows you better than you know yourself. I am the shivers that travel down your spine and the thing that keeps your eyes wide open in fear. The thing that haunts you. Keeps you in my vice grip.

I am the keeper of darkness. Because I am you. And you are me. But I am also the one thing that keeps you fighting. Keep you alive. Together, we are infinite. Together we will live on.

Together, we rise.
Heart and mind as one.

  2. Sometimes, we must, accept the dark sides of ourselves, including all the negatives, our anger, upset, sadness, sorrows, etc., etc., etc., in order to finally be at peace with ourselves, because if we can’t even feel at peace with ourselves, how do we deal with the chaos that’s happening outside???
