Tormented By Demons - Poem by Kevin Carney

I am tormented by demons…
Facing them throughout my life.
Find me a wizard…
Let me talk to the soothsayer.
Could it be…
I need my fortune read?
Toss those bones on the table…
Tell me what they say…
Pull out the Tarot cards let me see how they read…
I don’t think I would ever believe…
Can I conquer all that I fear?
Will my past finally catch up with me?
I used so much luck…
Will I pay for it in the end?
Can I look at the stars?
Look into your eyes…
Will I be able to wash all my misery away?
It’s like a babe trying to take his first steps again…
The stumble and fall, always getting up in the end.
Moving ahead, balance all so off…
I might as well be a blind man.

    Where Truth Resides

    Demons base that hound throughout life
    may often be considered false not fearful
    when fears of false witness are cast aside
    when one values opinions of honour integrity
    what power can slander wield where truth resides
    what strength of will determination may reign
    when we release false feigns to their fallen abode
    inner will compass set offers new horizons wide
    destinies sails full resolute in conflict challenges
