For the first time i can see my sight is restored And into the darkness I'll continue to go ....

in #poem2 years ago

The doctors gave me medication, the pastor said pray

I remember that house i grew up in
And how those demons would rattle that place
I'd lay awake at night just staring at the ceiling
I've spent my whole life trying to run away from that feeling

That feeling of being lonely
That feeling of being lost
That feeling of being sick when the lights turn off
That feeling of being depressed
That feeling of being anxious
That feeling of screaming to God,
Begging him to take this
Only to get silenced in return

Terrified that all along God has tallied my sins
And if he has the number it must be astronomic
Because everything you think that i am is far from the truth
I wish i could open up to you and just let loose

The sounds of chaos might be
Reverberating around you like heavy metal
I've been lied to just like you're being lied to now
Other people can't help you but i might know how

Know that everything the devil did to you
He wants you to replay
But everything the devil took from you
God wants to replace

I'm announcing it now that the devil can't hold me
I'm walking away from the old me
I'm setting fire to the devil and
I'm dousing these demons in gasoline
And I'm demanding a refund on every lie that you sold me

I wish i could lock my arms around you
Tell the devil to beat it.
