When the darkness comes so do the demons,

Trying to overtake your thoughts and your soul

Doubts, fears and low self worth feed their hungry bodies.

To fight them off and overcome the pitch black of the night

You must believe in yourself, Trust in yourself

And know you are truly special, one of a kind.

The light emerges and once again you hide your pain

Knowing that you will live to fight another day

Have faith and know this time is yours

Don’t take it for granted

Live each moment to the fullest

And chase the darkness away.
