Begone, Demon!


A couple of nights ago
I had a conversation with a demon.
He criticized me for wanting free time.
He implied that I am nothing more than a role to fulfill
and in the absence of that role,
I am worthless.
Well…I was speechless, and so I didn’t respond.
If I had had the words to respond then,
I would’ve said,
Yes, I do want free time.
Of course I do. Don’t you?
Doesn’t everyone?
I deserve kindness, respect, warmth.
I won’t let you determine how I feel about myself.
Begone, Demon!
