I think that no one sucks at writing, the first draft is always going to be messy and criticized, but the best writers pull through it and revise their writing until they believe its perfect.

Devil, Devil
You hurt
You scar
You torture

Devil, Devil
They fear you
They hate you
They scream at you

Devil, Devil
No one knows
Knows that you are broken
And scared yourself

Devil, Devil
You are not evil
You are scarred
Filled with the scars of torture

Devil, Devil
They don't know you
Like I know you
You lash out like a wounded, wild animal

Devil, Devil
You are in hiding
Waiting for love
Just like everyone else

Devil, Devil
You have been hurt and scarred
You have done bad
But that doesn't make you evil

Devil, Devil
Show some kindness
Show some mercy
Because everyone isn't a saint

Devil, Devil
You deserve love
You are worthy
You just need to learn to love yourself
THIS IS NOT SAYING THAT THE ACTUAL DEVIL ISN'T EVIL!!! This is based off anger, and loss, and depression. It's telling the story of how you can set down the trauma's, and hurt you have gone through to learn to love yourself and know that you can be happy.

    Woah.. this piece is powerful and so emotional. It's interesting how you paint the devil in this piece. And I can definitely tell it's based from anger, and loss, and depression. Learning to love oneself is important, and I definitely struggle with it. Sending hopes and hugs your way! <3
