Devil inside us

I am hiding from the world for so long,

But the devil inside us wants himself to be shown.

As this world doesn’t deserve our kindness and gratitude,

These trees don’t deserve our love in the form of a downpour.

I’ve been an angel for so long, tired and exhausted,

They strive to come, these demons inside my soul.

My sword they hold in their hands,

Covered with the fire, I never got smothered.

They tried to slay my temperament,

All they were left with ashes and their soul.

But I try to keep my devils inside,

As they are severe and destructive,

I keep them alive inside me as they are beautifully demonic.
