"He will heal all of your diseases" - Psalm 103:3

Leave me alone, I begged
It reached for me with its unforgiving, cold fingers
Light shot at it but could not penetrate the dark skin of its false protection
Seductive, it perched on my shoulder
Why did I let it come in?
Lies, it was
All lies

It says you're not good enough
You will never make it
Who would want you?
You're alone

Lies, they repeat themselves
They...won't shut up
Can't be muted
If only there was a remote to lower their volume to nonexistence

But who always wins?
Who can break down any wall?
That voice inside your head,
The darkness.
It can't stand up to this new force
Jesus steps in with a ring of light
Shining in the light of His glory

If He is with you, who can be against you?

The author's comments:
The lies of your life speak at you with intense voices, almost to the point of suicide. Darkness seems so overwhelming, when really, it is just a pull of a chain and a dusty, dim light bulb igniting away from extinction.
