An Enemy Within - Poem by Santhosh Vijayakumar

There dwells an enemy within,
An enemy who is the cause of all agony.
He stays deep within,
For he wants me to suffer.
Why this enmity? I know not.
All I know is the pain he causes.
Now he is digging my grave, with my own hands.
I am standing grief struck.
To the enemy, who is close,
More close than my closest friend,
I summoned him to unveil.
He is none other that evil,
That evil of all ill-will I bore,
I bore deep within.
