    With my back against the wall
    no one from behind
    the demon that must torture me
    for him i seek to find
    He always tries to get behind
    and i can never see
    who he is or what he is
    but i know he truly be
    i feel him try to sneak behind
    and climb inside my head
    his ghostly mist encompasses me
    this beast that once was dead
    I thought he gone forever
    i thought i could forget
    the sin that made him follow me
    the guilt that once i let
    bury itself inside my head
    i couldn't get it out
    i could never tell anyone
    what his attack was about
    If somehow i do survive
    and find another wall
    i'd like to get myself three more
    and curl up in a ball
    in my square chamber i will hide
    locked away from all
    i hide from all that i don't know
    my back against the wall

    This is such a powerful piece that speaks to the inner demons called anger, shame, guilt, doubt and fear; demons we all possess to some degree. But your heart knows the truth about who you are and a heart that acknowledges and seeks the comfort and healing of Divine Spirit can cast out all demons.

    Peace and Blessings,
    JNubian

    how can you destroy the demons that you won't even accept as being there. In this piece i was trying to get across the cowardice i feel. I am terrified of my self and my thoughts. Sometimes i just want to hide

    You are on you're way sweet!

    For what it's worth you are already doing what you need to do,
    your spirit has told you to put it on paper cause it is safer and
    by doing so you articulate (by a process) that will lead you to
    forgive yourself.....One only has to ask! Since this is quotes I think sometimes my words alone are not sufficient someone else said it better.....Chaka Kahn" and it's happiness to know that from yo self you cannot hide, but it's here where I am...and it you
    thats by my side! ain't saying it's right and saying it's wrong and saying it'sanything but a "show-a-long", but I am so , glad, so glad I had this chance to spend some time with you!!!!!well I coudl do the whole song......But, I won't! I was particualrly stricken with the deep,dark sadness that goes with the weight of
    shame........it's only another negative tool sent to hinder your souls progress, be strong , be still and beeeeeeeeeeeeee
    BLESSED FOR YOU ARE! 1

    I sometimes feel driven insane by life. I love the ups but my downs keep getting harder and harder to take. I'm not the kind to take my own life so thats where my torment lies

    PSOUL; Encouragement to your soul!

    I can tell you how deeply you have touched my spirit, for I share the same battle, won't go into it...But, I have found that many of the creative forces in the world and history and just in day to day life within our communities , the gifted are particularly vunerable to depression/anxiety and manic episodes! The feelings you describe are not of your own doing or making and therefore you must endeavor to stay strong and be encouraged you are not alone. With the gift comes a price and sometimes that price is peace of mind. In our gift of intuitiveness we are also open to
    all forms of negative energy that seek to destroy our gifts, but
    we must stay on the battle field and fight until the battle is done and won! " He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength! "Don't let nothing and nobody
    hinder you" You will! And YOu Shall prevail! Blessings on your house and may God grant you serenity!
