We all have our inner demons,

the shadow-monsters that follow us

whispering abuse in our ears.

You may not see them,

but they follow everyone, 

and sometimes they're strong, too strong

for one to handle by themself.


They are powerful, and painful,

yet can be defeated by the smallest things.

Just knowing that you're not alone.

Reach out to someone,

tell them you care.

A gesture as simple as a word, a smile,

might save a life today
