The Demon

Why am I so messed up you ask
Not with the words you spoke
But I heard them all the same
Why am I always depressed?
I don’t know,
Maybe it’s because
the demon wants to take me away
Maybe it’s because the demon tried
Maybe it’s because the demon failed
Why am I so tired?
I’m trying to stay alive.
I’m trying to stay ok
Yes just okay
Because being okay
Is better than the demon
Because the demon is in pain
The demon lashes out
The demon hurts my friends
The demon wants me dead
The demon’s stuck in my head
Why is it there?

Because I'm my own demon.
