Inner Daemons

Posted on Dec 19, 2012


He’s fighting many
Has most of his life
Tries to do good
No-one to confide
No-one understands
They never will
They don’t listen
No feelings they feel

But he fights others
Not what you can see
His inner daemons
Trying to break free
Trapped with them he is
For many years he’s been
Will he ever escape
He hopes a path to see

Until then he’ll fight
Because that’s all he knows
Hoping for a way
To be free from past ghosts
Maybe get that cottage
by the sea and mountains
Where seals and dolphins play
No more screams and shouting
