A War Inside My Mind

They say that there is good and evil in everyones heart
With me theres more
It feels like inside my mind is a neverending war
Some are good
Others are evil
Yet some who just want to fight
This mental war is killing me slowly
Please let it end tonight
Day after day my head is pounding
I no longer care who wins
I don't care if its my good or happiness
Or even my worst of sins
This war may only end when I do
I feel this day is near
Suicide is for the weak
So I'll die very naturally
By a war inside my mind

    You actually remind me of myself. I too write a lot of angst, its a great relief to get it out on pen. My way of therapy too. I now try and write happy thoughts but its something I can't relate to as much. Your a good poet keep it up, and keep your pen closer than your enemies. (Report) Reply

    Again, I am right: You are a strong and a brave individual. We are always at odds with ourselves and your art is your salvation and your saving grace. Remember that: you will never be insane :) (Report) Reply
