Accept and acknowledge

Shy away from,

Your inner demons,

If you must,

But, acknowledge them once in a while,

They are a part of you as you are of them,


Your inner demons,

If you must,

But make peace with them,

It’s upto you to choose how to be and how not to be,


Your inner demons,

If you must,

But, hear them out,

They’d tell you why they are ,the way they are,


Your inner demons,

If you must,

But, learn from them,

Before they are shown the door.

Idea behind the poem :-All of us have our share of vices and virtues. To grow, we must acknowledge, accept, deal and learn from our vices as much as we are basking in the glory of our virtues.
