Skeletons and monsters


Image source:

There are skeletons in my closet
and monsters in my head
Theres no reason to try to hide it
or to check under my bed
I know where my faults lie
and I know my demons by name
And no matter how hard I try
sometimes I slip and play their game.
Anxiety, Depression
Jealousy and Pride
These are just a few of the demons
I know that live inside.
Sometimes I stay quiet
sometimes I scream and cry
sometimes I tell the truth
and sometimes I lie
I am not perfect
I know my demons and my faults
I know I can do this alone
I know to control my thoughts
There may be skeletons in my closet
and monsters in my head
but at least I know within my heart

I can defeat THEM instead.
