Too many heartaches and sorrow in life
eventually can get us to a place we would
not normally go or even think of.
When we suffer from loss and so much pain,
it takes a long time to heal.
We find that inner strength and slowly
get back up on our feet and find the way
to go forward, to eke out a new life,
to seek the love and joy we once had.
Then comes a time, when we have still
not found that new life or the love we so need,
that something starts growing within us,
something so hard to face we hide it even
from our self. But, to deny it, to pretend it is
not there, gives it more power,
and before we know it, we have demons within.
These demons within are born from the hurt
and pain we suffered. It is obvious to us
that the demons are the fault of the one
who once loved us, then ripped that love
out of our life so heartlessly. So, how are
we to get rid of the demons? The only
logical way, we subconsciously tell our self,
is to destroy the one who created these demons.
And where would that get us? It would only put us
in yet another place we would not normally go
or even think of. This whole scenario is what
it is like when walking on the dark side.
If we cannot pull out of this dark side,
we need to open to these demons,
let them know we are aware of them,
confront them and let them know we
have a mind of our own and will not
be controlled by them.
When we stay true to our self, embrace
the loving soul we know we are,
then those demons within slowly fade away,
and we become free, free to grow ever more
spiritual and loving. We can then open our eyes
and hearts to love and joy, which will attract the love
and joy we have been looking for.
Sometimes it helps to confide in a trusted friend
and ask for moral support and understanding.
