The War within me

The War Within me


Confusion sets in.
My mind is a blur.
Overthinking too much,
So hard to endure.

My thoughts go dark.
Personality turns black.
I'm unleashing a beast
I can no longer hold back.

I unleashed a beast within,
Stalking my prey.
As time went on,
My dark personality turned gray.

I conquered my aggression
And cast it aside.
Realized it's depression
That's been lurking inside.

The most powerful battle
That one can endure
Is the one with yourself,
Of that I'm so sure.
