Battling Demons - Poem by C.R. Ebowski

I fold my shaking hands and hang my weary head
Praying one day I will be able to leave my past behind
God help me understand how to face these trials
And in the end be able to keep my peace of mind

There have been those who have mistreated me
Taunting control and power, breaking me at their will
Sometimes when I think about these horrific events
It makes me want to grab the OxyContin and swallow every last pill.

I fold my shaking hands and hang my weary head
Praying one day I will be able to leave my past behind
Until that day I will forge ahead with this never ending fight
Battling demons, struggling to have them confined

    I really like this poem, it brings out honest emotions that are very hard to deal with.
    I know because i've felt this way before, it's really amazing how you put emotions into words without taking away from the feelings. **Michelle**

    C.R...I just read this after writing 'I Found Her'. Some day...you will leave your past behind, and each day takes you further and further away from it...some day...you will be exactly where you want to be...don't lose hope and don't give up.
    Hugs,
    Dee
