Dance with the devil

Dancing with the devil can be great challenge for everyone.

Dance with the devil

It is of no use to look at the sun,
it makes no difference to stare at the blue sky,
if darkness is the child that is growing inside of you,
black is all you will ever see,
screams is all you will ever hear,
demons will be your only friends,
and fear your only guide,

strange as it may seem,
this is the path you need to follow,
all the way till the end,
without looking back,
without asking for help,
without looking for a place to hide,

in this journey,
you need to carry your emotional buggage,
all by yourself,
only you know,
what you have put,
in the suitcase of your painful past,

keep walking,
dance with the devil,
learn all the moves,
learn all the steps,
and after you finish,
thank him for what he taught you,
for if it hadn't been for him,
you wouldn't be able to appreciate,
the light at the end of the tunnel.

Maria I love the whole approach of this piece. We do need to face downs, so we can appreciate the ups. Very descriptive
