anger and weakness

memories of me
when i was happier
i was someone
they all knew my name
all cowered in my shadow

it was me they feared
the gaze i sent through
their weak souls
leaving deep holes
of confusion and
pain

i grinned
the fear and hate
made me strong
they all ran
no one was safe

memories of me
when i was happier
i was someone
they all knew my name
all cowered in my shadow

in my fists
pure anger and torture
they will cower again
at my deep wanton
destruction

i terrified myself
with all that i kept in
my fists relax
the rage stops
it all seems unreal

memories of me
when i was happier
i was someone
they all knew my name
all cowered in my shadow

i sit in my old chair
no longer mad
as aged as this seat
that relaxes my weak
body

they do not
cower
all praise
at my passing
it ends

memories of me
when i was happier
i was someone
they all knew my name
all cowered in my shadow
