The Battle Within
Deep inside the anger grows,
No one cares, no one knows.
Damages the human race does,
Who knows the answer or cause?
Eyes of red, full of hate,
Something stirring and waits.
Knowing to try, no much time,
Seeing the mountain there, ready to climb.
Frustration fills, almost to boil,
Like a wire so tight, with a touch, it will uncoil.
A single life at stake,
No matter how it is done, whatever it takes.
A razor sharp line must be crossed,
The devastation will be great at no one’s cost.
A seed of destruction grabs ahold,
The battle within must never be told.
This demon had to be killed,
The luxury of life is all that is willed.
A wall of stone made, temper starts to increase,
The battle within will it ever cease?
A ray of hope from above slowly grows,
Through the light, hands start to show.
Unsure of what to expect, defenses take charge,
A voice comes to try to open the heart up large.
The wall crumbles down as a cream cries out,
Help reaching in is no longer a shadow of doubt.
Hatred and anger leave, tenderness has finally begun,
Ripping despair, the battle within is gone, love has finally won.
