I am lured today
By the demon inside
The voice that haunts me with silent questions
Nagging at the back of my mind
The prevailing sense of melancholy
That says, "who cares?"
and "what does it matter?"
and "will this ever end?"
The child inside
That wants to curl up and sleep
The wounded one that wants to weep
The restless one that wants to run like the wind
The decadent one that aches for sin
I stand back and watch this inner-me
And struggle for my sanity
Picking up the pieces
| You give yourself too little credit. This was actually quite sound both in reflection and insight. It is an eternal struggle which lives inside each one of us. All of the weapons the Enemy wields to distract us from faith were deployed in this write: discouragement, despair, hopelessness, and insignificance topped with temptation.|
You made this poem sing with echoes of eternal longing and spiritual hunger planted deep within each of us.

You have a sure hand, and are gifted with the ability to express yourself.
