No.192: The Worst Demons


The worst demons 
aren’t the ones you don’t see coming.

No, the worst demons 
are the ones you know by name,
the ones that always seem to win
even when you see them early, 
running towards you 
from a mile away.

Don’t just stand there
while they grab you,
trap you,
claim you
with shackles.

There is no time.
Aim early.
Take the headshot.
End your suffering.

Before it ever happens.
