The Unwelcome Guest
written by: Maggie Watson
The unwelcome guest is a parasite feeding on your mind.
It arrives without warning and leaves when it decides.
The unwelcome guest is the grim reaper with no disguise.
The more you run, the harder it tries.
To destroy your peace until it releases its grip.
So you slip and slide into the abyss,
where all your insecurities lie.
And lie they do because the unwelcome guest never tells the truth.
As the venom pours out from its mouth, you scream out loud, but it only laughs in your face.
The unwelcome guest is not part of the human race.
But it is a “thing” that many of us live with every day.
And it is never far away.
