Demons by Debbie
What did you do with your demons today?
Did they come out into the light of day?
Or did you find a way to stuff them down
Perhaps even an attempt to drown
Did you shove them deep inside
Where no one will see where they hide
Imagine if you let them loose
Who would run after the wild goose
In this we deny half of our being
It’s the light only people are seeing
This constant battle makes us ill
Fighting our true nature against our will
Healing begins when we let them out
To run and play and scream and shout
The shadow and light make us whole
The integration of the two is the goal
So undo the locks and open the gate
Let out the anger, rage and hate
When the demons have found release
We can finally find our peace
Somehow, somewhere at sometime the way I connected with feelings changed into poetic expression, and so I have fun as I learn this method of creatively expressing.
