Authors Note: We all have those demons hidden away. This poem reflects the triumph over the evil. Words in boldface, at the end of the poem, are the partial lyrics to the song “Slay the Dragon”, written by my dear friend, John Kooch. Used with Permission.
Darkness hides in closets, deep
Awakens, when you’re fast asleep
Lurking in the corners, where
It roams about without a care
Closing in, around your bed
This demon lies, inside your head
Don’t let him get the best of you
Fight! With everything that’s true
“In the dark, behind closet doors
I’ve got mine, I know you have yours….
Slay the dragon, all the courageous are blessed
Slay the dragon, until there are no dragons left”
