The demons within..


Of all the challenges life throws your way,
of all the fights you'll ever be in..
The ones you'll have with your own self,
are going to be the hardest to win..

For there are times when it's not the world..
piercing your soul with its ruthless eyes..
It's when you seem worthless to your own self,
that a thousand tears your heart cries..

Those days when everything seems to go wrong..
forcing you to question your might..
How is it when your own reflection tells you,
You are not good enough, not bright..

The times when it's you pulling yourself down..
deliberately holding onto your pain..
When you decide not to take the next step,
scared that you might fall again..

Tell me, what are you going to do..
When you turn out to be your biggest foe?
You might run away from the whole world but,
how far from yourself will you be able to go?

The despair which sets in,
like a ferocious beast out on prowl..
Feeding on shattered pieces of your spirit,
Priding itself on a murder most foul..

If only we could kill just as easily,
the demons dwelling in our heads..
The way our parents shoved away,
the ghosts hidden under our beds..

For them Demons dwelling inside..making their holes..
We do have angelic instincts to refine our souls..

But this time the curry you've made..
I could promise..its taste won't fade :)

Few words.Deep emotions.
For a tune,I could actually sing your poem(s).
What better than THAT!

"The ones you'll have with your own self,

scared that you might fall again..

the ghosts hidden under our beds.."

Superb!

PS-Quoting you sometime won't really be a bad idea.

Amazing poems...

This reverberates one quote that I hold dear to me.. quoting here

"One is not alone when world fails to understand .. One is alone when he/she fail to understand oneself! "

There werent no demons in my head
It was just me hiding under my own bed.
Then came friends and they pulled me out.
And helped me realise what my life was all about.

^^ quite true, but then again do we really need to win?We should all want life to be our teacher not some kind of weird try
to explain it but the source itself
We dont need any scientific heroes only wanting to help and
in the end you remain with a rope in your hand and a short message that if the salvation plane should ever land you have to tie yourself fastly to it

Your poem is really well written..rich and inspired.
and i too must thnk kevin for guiding me here
Leave me some comments too :)
