In Plain Sight

in the basement 
the demons reside
there is a stairway
aware of where they hide
can't get there, I've been searching for the door 

i'm not afraid
but i have never looked them in the eye
feeling lost in my own life
makes me want to cry
it's in front of me, just turn the knob

when i finally face them 
the tears will freely flow
dropping weight from my aching shoulders
allowing me to breathe and grow
maybe tomorrow, they will be there still
