The Demon Extulizar, Part III: Running Away

need to keep running can't stop must escape
claws reach for me must stay ahead can't fall back
stay on path keep focus don't look back
it reaches for me must move forward
can't let evil draw me in have to stay clear of the claws
it gives pain it creates horror it pulls life apart
reaching to the sun letting life grow holding to hope
I can kill it by not wanting what it offers
it can kill me must not let it pull me back
I can kill it by running towards what is right
what is good what is needed what helps
I live my life I reject its offers
I learn I help I guide I lead I follow I hope
running away from it
running towards what is good
running towards Happiness
