The Evil In Us All

I've been called by many things,

But Evil is my name

I live within the hearts of men, 

Where hatred stays the same

 

I'm sure you think you know me,

But I'm not the man you see

I'm only just a figment of,

Your own insanity

 

I prey upon your darkest fear,

And feed on all your pain

I shatter every dream you've had,

Til nothing else remains

 

I'll slowly take your very life,

Just one breath at a time

And destroy all that which makes you you

Til everything is mine

 

Even though I'm not alone,

So many take the fall

The only thing we have to fear,

Is the Evil in us all

              Has a nice flow and rhythm.
              Very understandable.
              Portrays theme in depth but with brevity.
              Liked it a lot.
