Demons Within

Demons Within

Confront your demons …

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.

Open the heart to love and joy …

Sometimes it helps to confide in a trusted friend
and ask for moral support and understanding.

I have always liked to write.It is important to me that writing comes from my heart and soul. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions. Thank you for visiting.

    So true Phyllis, true freedom comes from not being tethered to anything: belief, people, past conflict or contention. Then in freedom love and everything else is possible. Nice work my friend.

    So true. The demons are something self-inflicted, by getting to close to loce. But hey that is the price you pay for engulfing yourself in love, right, you dont love half way its the whole thing or nothing at all, so those demons may come and go, but you are so right it is our own job to remove them as well. Nice work Phyllis.

    Very nicely, and shuddering written, Phyllis. From all those wayfarer voyages into the world, come presence of good and evil. And as the psychiatrist on MASH once said “I’m coaxing a ,little bud to grow. Meanwhile. I’m going back to work!”
