The war inside

It’s a fight I try to hide
The anger that rages in me.
My mind toils with vengeful thoughts
Draining my soul of all positive thoughts.
Fire on my tongue;
I feel it surround me holding me in place,
Pushing it down trying not to let me in.
Knowing the danger is about to arrive
All I could feel was hatred inside.
The urge to scream was unbearable
Destroying every hope I’ve ever had.
A never ending battle has started again
It’s me and my anger, again.
