Treasure Island

Steven Harris


The Tikoloshe


The Tikoloshe follows you everywhere
it's the demon over your shoulder
it hunts you down from morning to
night
every step you take it's right behind
you
it's the temptation
it's the soul taker
it lives under your bed when you
sleep
it speaks to you when you close your
eyes
it's the devil that gives you nightmares
the tikoloshe is the ultimate beast
always watch out for the tikoloshe
never turn your back to it when it's there
always face it head on
never let it take your soul
always show it a firm fist
your energy will destroy it
the tikoloshe can be destroyed
only if your power it strong.

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
