As I sit in the dark,
one thousand demons rise up
chanting promises they will
not keep. They know me well
and tempt all the areas of
weakness, both past and present.
Will I fall again or rise above
the clatter of chains with which
they wish to bind me?
I go within, deep into my inner-
most core, a spot where no darkness
can ever shadow. I touch this Light
of Love that guards me, letting its
power diffuse throughout my being.
A sigh of serenity, a nod of
acknowledgement and I am home.
Slowly the demons fade away
knowing that, for now, I am
beyond their reach.
