Just another poem....

I fight hate with every breath 
concealed in self-control
Beneath the surface Evil haunts 
the peace within my soul
 
These tortured thoughts which fill my head 
are tearing me apart
From deep within I feel the pain 
and have right from the start
 
My peace of mind is faltering 
but how long shall it last
Before I relive all the pains 
within my tortured past
 
This battle rages inwardly 
to mask constant deceit
While transformations of the soul 
are all but incomplete
 
I'm stuck between the man I am 
and who I use to be
My attempts at peace are useless 
since I'm bound by misery
 
All this torture and the pain 
have finally taken hold
As I'll fight hate with every breath 
concealed in self-control
