This is a poem that I used for a poetry challenge. You pick a song; then you write something based on the meaning behind the song. My peom is based on the song "Not Afraid" by rapper Eminem.

Look into my eyes
See the emptiness
A lost soul
Long gone by my own hands
By my own choices
By my own struggle
To find a moment of solace
Afraid of losing it all
Not afraid of standing up
Fought to clean my life
Clear out my mind
Clear my soul
End my downward spiral
Into the ashes of death
Reaching out for help
From others struggling with me
Afraid of failure
Not afraid to take a stand
Given a second chance
My heart beats a different tune
My soul returns
Into my face
My eyes
My life
You're not alone
Through the storm
Reach out for the sky
Of happiness and clarity
Afraid of going back
I'm not afraid
Look into my eyes
I'm back
