God (Inspired by)

For years I was possessed by my demons,

controlled by the voices in my head.


Darkness became my abode;

I settled alone in shadows.


I was a chained and held prisoner

in solitary confinement. 


I couldn't escape the voices

how matter how hard I tried

or how fast I ran.


Then one day I found the light;

it spoke with authority

and called me out of darkness.


Now I speak light to others,

show them how dark my life was

and what set me free.
