Who is this person deep within my soul?
Yearning to be free
Lurking deep beneath the fleshly body
Alien to me.
Each time that I feel happiness abound
Sprits flying high
You come along with a mad raging force
Causing me to cry
A hateful hurtful personality
A coward no doubt
Shadowed deep within this tortured mind
Waiting to come out.
I do not know this sad skulking creature
Fighting to be real
You cannot be any part of myself
Or the things I feel
Why do you constantly lie in waiting?
Recurring at will
Bringing forth your unscrupulous thoughts
Making me feel ill.
All I want is a life of contentment
Peace within my heart
This deceitful demon within my soul
Hindering my will to start.
