Grow Wings

this demon,
your constant companion
so close
you cannot tell it apart
from yourself

feeds endlessly
on truth, joy and peace

an open mouth
always hungry
for more

only when
you’re drowned in prayer
and in dreams
where God holds your hand
you know what it’s like
to be free

of this black portal
that knows only
its own hunger

refuse to feed it
with your joy
it has no power over you
except the power you give

be brave
grow wings
