You paint a picture of sacrifice

Of what others want you to be

And not the person deep inside

The innocent waiting to be set free

They dictate your every move

Hold you back calling you wrong

Even when it’s not true

You hold on, but for how long

All they see is what’s outside

Theydo not see past your skin

The beauty held within your soul

The beauty you have deep within

The life we lead is often hidden

And is a cleverly built disguise.

The real you never to be seen

So others may not look with despise

It is so very hard to show the world

The Angel that lives within your heart

But opening up to one you trust

Must ultimately be the very start?

The Daemon you see is not food

And no matter what you try and do

To blame others is not the way

As the Daemon that's inside is you!
