Hidden Pain

 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

 of  questions in my heart


My peace of mind is faltering

 but how long shall it last

Before I relive all the pains

 within my tortured past

The battle rages inwardly

 to mask constant deceit

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 the terrors and the pain

 have finally taken hold

As I fight hate with every breath

 concealed in self-control
