shadows of the night
lurk around every corner of my innerself
trying to take over my soul

The shadows smell my delicous soul
wanting to devour every last bit of it
trying to take over me completely

Thinking my heart will be turned to black sulfur
if they take away my soul
but they are so wrong

I smile as they come my way
knowing i have people on my side
helping me keep my light brightly lit

The darkness trys to swallow me whole
trying to fight the shadows off
makes me weary... and i give up

I see myself fall to the ground
feeling my heart turn black and hateful
for a few minutes

till i remember one special person in my life
and the memories i have with him
brings the inner light back to my heart

winning over the shadows of the night
was tough but i had someone to help me remember
that good will always win over evil.
