    My demons are real...

    Because I am their creator.

    They did not come to me
    I made them.

    Made them out of the life
    Surrounding me.

    Made them out my own
    Self comforting lie.

    Every one of them
    Was given birth...

    From my own heart.

    Their heart beat of self
    Seated in my own mind.

    Their life wrest out of me
    Stolen from my heart.

    Yet I gave them birth
    I am the sole judgment
    Of their existence

    I hold all power over these
    Self derisions...

    Self judgments...

    My demons are real!

    The only way to rid myself ....

    Is to forgive myself

    And learn to live with that regret.

    edit: Dear God I think I could do better sober.
