A question I have pondered for years. Is it best to fight your Demons or learn to love your Demons? And by demons, I mean everything from my mental issues, to my internal pain and struggle from loss, to my “disability”, to the weight problem I have battled my entire life, to the evil that has darkened part of me forever.
I had fought mine hard for so long, that I had begun to feel like Sisyphus. But I believe that I have finally realized that I if I stop fighting the uphill battle it isn’t really giving up if I choose to accept the Demons and what they bring to my life. Learn to live with them. Maybe in acceptance we can finally live together in a sort of peace.
Because really…..would I be ME without Them?
I hear them again
They are always here
Whispering their wants and desires
Trying to change me
Trying to keep me the same
Fear the Darkness
Run far away
They’ve been here when I was alone
They’ve been here when I was lonely in a crowd
They’ve been a comfort
They’ve held me up when I was sure to fall
Let them Go
Let them Stay
Does it really matter
There will always be darkness in the end
Accept and Love the Demons within
