The Battle within

Many seek the enemies without
Locking the doors to keep them out

Untouched the internal enemy remains
causing great sorrows and pains

They establish their stay
And cause internal decay

To hidden treasures they have access
Precious lives they make a mess

The external enemies they invite
And eat up like a termite
