You’ve understood, and listened to, the wise words that have been spoken.

You stand up there confidently, go to speak but then you’re choking.

The devil’s words creep into your mind, and starts the wheel:

You’re useless.

You soldier on, determined to not let Him have any power. But with equal force, the voice gets louder; more frequent and much more ruthless.

Like a siege against a castle (with trebuchets, machines, and molten iron),

Externally, you’re brave and smiling. But inside you’re slowly dying.

As your psyche takes one hit after another,

And any sense of self worth you had is redundant! It has been smothered.
