I'm not an angel I hate myself
I’m not the devil I love people
I’m not human I don’t feel anything
I am a stone
Water washes it but in its core nothing happens
My core is empty
My core is shallow
My core is an empty black box
A clogged box
It can’t be opened
It can’t be filled
My heart is gone with the wind
I thought that the one would have my heart
But she does not
This is a fight I have to face
No one can fight for me
I should face my demons
I should face... me
This is a one way road, there is no turning back
I live in the dark, but someday I promise
I will see the light

    The war within self is the greatest war of all. The last line is so vital. Great job!
