( old poem from “Once Upon A Time” )

In the darkest recesses of your mind, that is where your demons hide, an abyss full of bullshit, self-doubt and lies.
You can run, you can hide, but there is no escape.
The only way is to sit with your demons and let them play.
Let the venom of their words pierce your skin and run through your veins.
Succumb to the numbness and the pain.
It is the only way you will ever escape from the abyss and see the light again.
