Time won’t stop

we can’t stop time

it casts a curtain

then pulls it

on our lives

It reveals

what we don’t want to see

Fear

is like a fire

Visions

won’t go away

I’m wrestling

with demons

stronger

than any supernatural force

These battles are invisible

my invisible war

Many want peace

but I need to conquer

not for glory

but for my own approval

running faster

than my foes

escaping prisons

real

and imagined

My spirit

is liberated

My naked body

exposed

Death

did not win.
