Dealing With Demons
14 August, 2008
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


Sometimes the demons come back
Hidden in a different form
Sneaking back when least expected
Quietly I fear they might win

This time stronger than before
After all the times beating them down
Why this time am I so weak
What is holding me back

I feel defeated strength is gone
What makes this time different
Dare I admit defeat
Dare I admit I need help

I'm tired of fighting
My sword not sharp
To take the easier way out
Why does it feel wrong

Noticed the subject was depression...good way to explain the confusion you go through when depressed. Kind of scary though because I thought I wasn't as sad as I've been before......Reading this I realize that I MAY be...not sure....if I lose weight we'll figure it out :)Might not be though. Good writing Becky!!
