How are those demons treating you?

There is a difference between demon possession and demon oppression.

Within a melancholy

state of mind

I sing

I dance

Block out the thoughts

Could these thoughts possibly

be mine?

Maybe they’re not

Perhaps an evil spirit sits

Upon my back and whispers

Things I never wanted to find out

Or wished I had forgot

Am I possessed, you ask

How preposterous that sounds

To think for you to think of such a thought

Perhaps I am oppressed

As demons crawl around my head

They try to burrow lies inside

Accusatory thoughts

“Just say a prayer,” they said

Yet I didn’t know how to pray

The demons out that were not there

Even though evil may chase me

Even though I get confused

They will never enter into

A place where I am sealed

I know that if someone hates me

It’s not their hate that stands before me

But influences from spiritual realms

That most are too afraid to see
