Tfam13 Poetry: Inner Peace


I’m trying my best to find inner peace

All I want is for the negative thoughts in my my mind to cease

Why do I have so much anger and anxiety inside of me

I think back to the slightly younger me

Back when I was even more violent and frozen cold

When I let the devil take a hold, driving through the cut, just trying to score a couple bucks

Letting whoever come along and ride with me, trying my best to feel alive and free

Always needing some remedies to reduce my pain and frustration, driving fast like I’m on my way towards salvation

Trying to outrun my demons, almost always ending the night dry heaving

Never knowing what to believe in, while some would say I commit so many sins

I thought I was going to make it out, then out of nowhere I hit an unexpected roundabout

I’m driving fast facing my hatred head on, trying to fight myself so hard, feeling like I’m throwing hands in the octagon

I hit my evil followers head on, smacked so hard it felt it was done by Kong

All I can do is to try and keep on running, whenever those thoughts arise I’ll keep on gunning

I wish I could go back and tell the younger me that’s not the right path to inner peace

While I’m currently on a new road towards release, I’m still very much a beginner, hoping one day inner destruction will decrease

  1. I LOVE AND LIVE THIS!!! This is somewhat of how I felt growing up. If you haven’t you should really do something were you can read this aloud. You would be surprised of how many people can relate to your words.
