Shame is stronger than the soul

This is a poem I wrote about shame taking control of my entire being. Shame is the speaker in the poem, and it holds nothing back.

You'll Never Win (Personification of Shame)

I creep into the depths of your soul
Tearing at your heart and your mind
There’s no part of you that I can’t control
There is nowhere for you to run and hide

That memory that you can’t forget
Will never be erased and gone
I’ll keep reminding you those words you said
And you will continue to be my pawn

I laugh at you when you’re feeling down
I yell when you just need some space
Just when you think I’m no longer around
I sneak up from behind and win the chase

I keep you from forgiving yourself
It’s my job to keep you confused
I should feel bad I know that I’m no help
But helping isn't what I’m here to do

I creep into the depths of your soul
Tearing at your heart and your mind
There’s no part of you that I can’t control
There is nowhere for you to run and hide

I enjoy writing of all kinds, but my favorite style is poetry. I love country music, so a lot of my poetry is lyrics. I have recently begun to write short fiction stories and personal stories.
