new demons

years spent running

trying everything to flee

finally, cornered

the realization they can’t be outrun

so you fight, outnumbered 

as their numbers have grown

and yet, you triumph

against all odds, alone

moved on, battle-tested

until you bump into new demons

or are they the same?
