Inner Demons

Homeless man in Singapore

Everyday he sat at that same spot,

leaning against the grimy pillar,

avoiding eye contact with passersby.

Despite never making a sound, his presence was always felt.

There was an evident torment in his eyes.

Was it regret? Guilt?

What caused this man such deep anguish?

I shall never know.

Although I do not know what troubles him, I can somehow relate.

For we all have demons buried within us.

Some are just better than others at hiding them.
