Sleepless nights,
dreadful dreams,
are haunting me.
The mysterious sounds
of the night,
are very frightening me.
Panic and rage
Runs through my body
The devil is trying to get in.
Day after day
I fight off the urges
That would be so satisfying
A battle rages
Deep within my soul
It's all I can do to hold on.
Prayer is my weapon,
faith gives me peace of mind,
to stop the demons from taking over.
Depression knocks me down,
Grace picks me back up,
As the battle still rages
I pray and pray
For the fight to end
But I know the battle is still within.
