562 The Silver Dragonness: Awakening [21 September 2003]

the despair returns
crowning my inner demon
with her circlet of power
holding me captive within
the terror of her embrace
shall I give up?
melting into the darkness
like one more minion
forgetting the self in the process.
or will the sleeping dragon
awaken in my defense?
Releasing my bonds
defeating the demonic despair
by turning it into anger
to fight back.
