The mind is the battleground

It happens, each and every time I run. I go to a place. A place inside my mind. A place infested, with demons.  Demons, that have been conceived here. Demons, that I have conjured. And with every failure, every defeat, every humiliation I have ever experienced, they multiply.  Demons, whose sole purpose is to rob me of any pride, any comfort, any peace, until little by little, there is nothing left. The weight of their presence is so crippling. I have found myself with my head in my hands, down on my knees so many times.

And with each mile I run, I evict them, one by one, from that place. I take back a small piece of me. A piece that I know is rightfully mine.

I do not want you to think I run for revenge. To think that, would be to miss the point. I run to settle a dispute. I run, for a reckoning.

And there are so, so many demons... And I have so, so many more miles to go, before there is peace.

It is better to die on your feet than live on your knees...
