“They thought that they would finish me”…

Eyes full of tears…
And a broken heart…

He sits all alone…
After his life fell apart…

As they killed his children…
They murdered his wife…

Broke his fucking heart…
And destroyed his life…

Left him with nothing…
Except a thirst for revenge…

The memory of his family…
Is who he’ll avenge…

With nothing to lose…
And nothing to gain…

He’s constructed a plan…
Through eyes full of pain…

He’s worked out the angles…
The in’s and the outs…

He’ll get them one by one…
Of that there’s no doubt…

As he knows how to find them…
Knows where they all live…

He will serve his justice…
And he will never forgive…

Without any sign of fear…
And without hesitation…

He will slowly release…
His anger and frustration…

On the guilty parties…
Who ripped apart his soul…

They won’t see him coming…
Or prevent him from his goal…

As it’s now his mission…
His sole purpose in life…

And he burns with a hatred…
Armed with only a knife…

Now he sits in a corner…
And he bides his time…

Knowing the bastards…
Will pay for their crimes…

  1. Brilliant! I don’t usually enjoy rhymed poems because many force rhymes that just end up sounding contrived… but not this one! Your rhymes fit perfectly! You maintain the same rhythm throughout the entire piece. I greatly enjoyed this!

    • Thank you Lori – I do like to rhyme, but have tried other ways of writing as well – I learn more about writing poems each day – some I get near to the mark, others are just fillers! Glad you connected with this – Cheers J

    • Intially I misread that as mental 🙂 – either way it could work – I wish I was talented enough to take my words and make song lyrics – but alas – it’s never going to happen! Cheers J

      • Just tried it out against the Beastie Boys- Sabotage……slight changes to reduce the word tempos in some stanza’s and I think it works! Mental! 🙂
