Big punch in my solar plexus
Betrayals serve as the nexus
Long to be anywhere else
Futile try escape from self

Why it comes where to hide
Is there any god inside
Long for stress free quiet peace
Seeking transformation release

Feeling the disease within
Masked well but veneer is thin
Essential now to make peace
Or sadly this life will cease

How to move through the pain
Battle demons pelting rain
Endure without coming undone
Searching for strength some fun

Choices not sure what to do
Face the fear fake it through
I know it’s a transient state
Must traverse to the next gate

What internal demons have you battled?

What strategies have you used and what was your self-talk?

Can you help others?
