The Devils In Our Minds And Around Us - Poem by Sam Arjomandi

There are devils in the minds of all of us
Who constantly keep talking to us

They appear to us as a caring friend, which likes to give us advice
But when you listen to them, you better watch out and be wise

They are the master of manipulation and they are really good sweetalkers
Don’t let them hypnotize you, because they are trouble makers

They are responsible for the problems in our society, and all those who end up behind the bars
All because they trusted the devil and their friendship went too far

There are devils around us who look like any ordinary people with different jobs and tasks
If you open your eyes and lookout, you can recognize them, even though they have human masks

When it comes to the devils, my message is clear and brief
If you get away from them, you will never fall off the cliff

-Sam Arjomandi
