Neither victim
or survivor
From now on
I'll be a fighter
So tired from
being on the run
Drinking and drugs
are no longer
fun
Scarred and seared
I've lived in fear
Always believing 
my death was near
I'll pick myself up
off the floor
I'll walk away
and close that 
door
Battered and bloody
I choose to fight
With strength and will
I'll win tonight
No more living
and crying in fear
From now on
I'll be the thing
that demons fear

I really like your line, "I'll be the thing that demons fear." It is so powerful. Your rhyme has an easy musical flow and your footing is not too rigid, being close line by line, yet, not exact. It is very free, while sticking to musicality. ...
