The Devil Inside

When did this come to pass?

How could this come to be?

I was looking for the devil

While he was lurking inside of me

He came to life within me

He seeped through every cell

He basked in the glory

Of constructing my private hell

The thoughts he stirs and spices

Through the corners of my mind

If I let him get the best of me

I would leave you all behind

He preys on my weakness

My insecurities and doubts

He paints my world with a dirty brush

I forget what life's about

I shouldn't look outwards

Have courage and look within

Either I take another breath

Or commit my final sin
