Will Overcomes

He walks with a purpose, but stooped and wavering
No life in his eyes
A battle raging within
Give in my friend

Senses are heightened to the point of anguish
The demons tear him apart but never break the skin
He begins to fall now, crumpling into a ball, like a foetus in the womb
More! Please give us more

He wills the demons away
A will negated by the proximity of his next fix
They are gone then……for a while
It wasn’t enough. There are more of us now

On this sweltering day it seems he feels the cold down to his bones.
Body shaking like that of an epileptic in the throws of a seizure.
Evidence of the struggle within.
We can break you

Asphyxiated by those artificial voices, a rage builds
Sits there quietly at the base of his skull
Then unleashed like so often, on a family members offered hand
They don’t understand

Something gives in the back of his mind
His body stops shaking, his breathing starts to ease
Memories come flooding. Happier times, with family and friends
We won’t give you back

He opens his eyes, also his mind
I will not give in
You won’t get anymore
No more can you break me
They just want to help

You have already lost!
