I harbour a monster,
It lingers deep within.
It wants to escape me,
To tear free from my skin.
It gnaws at my insides,
And hopes that I'll give in.

It works hard to tempt me,
To lead me into sin.
It wants me to suffer
To feel its wretched sting.
But I stand true and strong,
I will not let it win.

The nights are the hardest,
In bed I pray and sing
To the Lord God above
To rid me of this thing.
But instead it remains,
My monster still within.

It is good to keep the faith but our inner demon will always tempt us to commit sin. Simple but affective.

I like this one a lot.
I can really relate to your work and the subjects of it.  Some of the pieces, especially this one, sound like words from my own life.
I'm going to watch you. =)

The artist here is talking about not in a true sense a monster, with horns and two heads, but the natural wild being within us that tends to satisfy his/her needs without others request. It is the Id that contains the animal side of human nature and which we tend or we were thaught to suppress, as Ego or Superego, for our own good. Very beautifully written and treated.
