"I have a daughter who reminds me too much of what i used to be, full of love and joy, kissing every person she met because everyone is good and will do her no harm. And that terrifies me to the point where i can barely function." -Kurt Cobain


You’re suffering through your own civil war;

But what are you fighting for?
Your battle cry is more of a petty roar.

But what are you fighting for?
Your very own mind is the king of despair;

But what are you fighting for?
And your past has left a scar which you cannot repair.

But what are you fighting for?
The stranger in the mirror, you’ve come to rue;

But what are you fighting for?
Because deep down inside, that monster is you.

& that’s what you’re fighting for.

I like the use of repetition and it was deep. I liked it. Good job!
