One day I made a pact
with a devil, strong and stout:
I would get the strength I lacked
and it would never be cast out.

Years later came a man
who tried to drive it away.
But I gave him a reprimand
and told him it could stay.

Because I knew that it would fade
when I was loved inside and out –
a statement which made
it rise up and shout:

“But you won’t love me ‘cause I’m special – I’ll just be the same
as all the other people who are calling out your name!”
