"We never lose our demons, we only learn to live above them"

Catch me drifting near the clouds

where no one will ever hurt me

Yet the most powerful weapon here

is something dark and extraordinary 

They say your inner thoughts

will guide you on your journey

Yet, once you reach a certain stop

they will combine into an army

They will rip at every piece of you

until they're sure you're dead

But once this mania buries over

you will be standing -- or so they said

You see, young traveler, here's the thing

It is impossible to heal from any mourning ring

Because the scars will stay

and emotions last

Yet one thing's for sure,

it is all in the past

@AlexisNinelle I really like how your poem describes things you think and how the ending wraps it up.
