In my mind
Of darkness and light
I’d like to say of light and darkness
But I know the darkness better than the light
It’s consumed me since birth
My life seemingly constructed to fill me with hate
Yet somehow have come to know the light
And hence the struggle of good and evil,
Darkness fighting to keep me
Light trying to rescue me.
In my mind there is a war
Of good and evil
Of God and Devil
Demons fighting angels
Around my spirit
I can feel it
And no one but me is aware of it.
It slowly drives me insane
And that is just what the devil would have
Yet God does not give up and relentlessly
Bangs at my beating heart
Waiting for me to make the choice
To turn the battle
In our favour.
