Heart has hardened
Soul is black
Devil says he's got my back

Venturing out
Sadistic world unknown
It's time my demons be known

The fight is on
Can't turn back
Damage I've done threw me off track

Men dead
Shead a tear
Demons say to persevere

Hateful heart
Demented mind
Thank go so few of my kind

one of my favourite words- accountability.

As a poetic critique the piece feels through the short lines to lack gravitas.

Then again the short lines add punch.

A new workshop on the most important element of poetry-
'Rhythm and Meter in Poetry'
