We all have a demon that we deal with personally.

It would like to feast on your emotions for all eternity.

It slumbers well in the back of your very mind,

And it can appear at the most troublesome of times.

We fight every day to avoid its cold, harsh grasp,

And once it does there’s no telling of how long the terror lasts.

So try your best to keep this demon at bay

Because the only thing it wants is to take your life and happiness away.
