A Villain’s Story

The mind of pure envy

A Villain’s Story

Shakespeare once said “hell is empty and all the devils are here”

As villains are only known to be feared.

One sacrifice causes screams and heartbreaks,

As every scream unknowingly causes the villains heart to ache.

People believe they know the inside of their minds,

Thinking that the villain is not one of their kind.

However the villain wishes they got more,

When all they got was a constant sore.

A sore that would never disappear,

Knowing that they were the one that people feared.

People would hide their children when the villain walked past,

In worry that this walk would be their last.

Villains did not choose the life that they had,

What people didn’t know was that villains could be sad.

They showed no emotion, as if they never cared,

But in reality they wish they had love to share.

Villains we’re taught to always act cold,

Only because it was they were told.

They had much emotion in their mind,

Waiting to find a way to act kind.

But a good chance never appeared,

As their unwilled mind always steered.

Being the villain means you are worse,

You are known to be a curse.

A villain isn’t supposed to be born with a heart,

But the reason for this is known from the start.

The villain always has the biggest heart,

Except they have been shattered into many parts.

Villains are taught to survive alone in the wild,

When heroes are taught to live freely in style.

The villains envy the heroes lives,

As they are slowly unhinging with every strive.

Being a villain is exhausting and damaging,

Being a villain means carrying a constant sting.

Hell is empty and all the devils are here,

The villain is the devil as they are entitled with fear.
