Alone Poem

We all have demons we battle daily. We all have things that cause pain. Let all keep fighting those demons. You're stronger than you think and please comment.

You don't know and I'll never tell,
If you look at me you'd never know what's really inside,
I may laugh and smile,
And you'll think I'm OK

I may act sunny and bright,
But really I'm dying inside,
I'm sinking slowly into a deep dark trench,
I wish begging for someone would show me the sun

To help me battle this thing inside me,
My demon,
My curse,
This thing inside me

All I want is someone to understand,
Someone else with my pain,
Someone with my curse,
So I don't feel so alone

I crave to have someone who know what it's like,
Someone who has my demon,
Someone who can fight with me.

    I let the demon come inside and take my life over too, where all I could see is darkness and a wall of fire. Some times it may feel as if you can only lay there , and watch...and if it gets to bad, may even enjoy it sometimes..the pain. But I soon turned the demon down and told him to leave...called for god...and when that didn't work. I cried for help, cried n cried...all you can do is TRY to think positive and know god/whoever you believe in would not put us through something we cannot handle, fight the demon off. I know you can. I did.

    I have many demons and I will tell you it is very hard to get over them. I myself have conquered only a few of mine. Just stay strong and you will make it through. I do at times.

    This pretty much sums up my life, I sometimes (always) I'm almost 14 and I feel like nobody has the same problems as me when actually soooo many people do! But yeah anyways you're really good at writing so don't stop! :)
