POEM: Painted Red (By Danny K)

Painted Red

Painted Red is a freestyle Sonnet written with no particular Metre or rhyme scheme. It is indeed a verse to express oneself:

Painted Red

Bruises on my heart
I triumph in dispute with my soul;
My conscience ridicules me-
Mostly am fighting against I.
My smile is an agenda of agony,
My laughter is a curve of pain.
The world is a den of lions
Human beings cannot be trusted;
Bitches are not only female dogs!
My smooth talk is never Innocent.
A path for me was chosen;
Stepping on thorns and scorpions
Sweat and blood marks my identity.
I flash back then forward
Then tell myself
U deserve better than this – or am I just a coward?
Forget whatever else you have heard
The whole thing has been painted red.

From the beginning of this poem, you can easily feel that Danny’s soul is troubled. He is fighting a war within himself to either let what has been said about him be, or speak out to let the truth out.

My conscience ridicules me-
Mostly am fighting against I.

 He believes the people around him are not patient enough to analise the real truth before judging him, but since he understands that the world is a cruel place, he is ready to swallow the bitter pill.

A path for me was chosen;
Stepping on thorns and scorpions
Sweat and blood marks my identity.
