Very familiar situation, isn’t it? Especially when giving up can be so easy? Fight that inner demon, digging deep for strength, which is there all the time!

We often struggle to fight our inner demons, at times we give in however most of the times its our willpower and strength that pulls us through our encounter with the beast within…

She whispered into my ears, “Shhhhh you can count on me, I can be your intimate and trustworthy friend”
I was enamoured by her persona…
She was like the Pan piper playing her magic pipe
My intoxicated steps get drawn towards her..
I said “But why can’t I see you clearly?”
Her shrieking laughter pierced my ears…
She said with a deep whizzing voice “Allow me to take charge of you”
Her persuasion led me to surrender…
Feeling unleashed, she said with her shrill voice “Let’s go for a ride…”
And roared in rage as she marched ahead
Her face turned scarier than a demon with horns and hooves
I felt as if she has spell a cast on me
It will be too late if I don’t master her..
Standing firm, I try and gather the power to harness her
I knew I can’t feed her anymore, I have to find a way to overpower her…
I hurl at her with all my strength and choke her by her neck…
At the count of three………She lay vanquished as I commemorate my heroic destiny over my Alter Ego….
