Ok, if you are sensitive, take constructive criticism badly or just generally have a temper the size of France, then I suggest you ignore what i am about to write below.
The writing is good but a wider range of vocabulary could be used. The sentences and paragraphs are structured clearly but the text feels....what's the word? A bit plain. Flat, almost. The use of repetition is effective. Emotive language could be used to make the reader feel angry,regretful,joyful,etc.

It was an alright story. I didn't like the repetitive use of I'm evil though. The story reminded me more of a poem instead of a short story.

I love it!. He needs to find the reason because nobody love him and that was because he is evil. So to his life make sense, he needs to become in to a mad man.
