Singer Chris Brown has repeatedly landed himself in the headlines amid legal problems resulting from bouts with anger, including his highly publicized 2009 attack on fellow pop singer and then-girlfriend Rihanna.

But in a recent Instagram post, the singer said that he's tired of the "devil ruining" his life, and indicated that he's turning over a new leaf.

Though his candid message included some expletives, the brief post invoked God, described intense struggles that the singer faces and proclaimed that — despite his public persona — he has a pure heart and soul.

When u tired of the fucking devil ruining your life and u hear God speak for the first time. No one knows what I deal with on a day to day. The average man wouldn't hesitate to blow his fucking brains out but that's the cowards way out... Most won't understand the genius and beauty in change and learning and the people who have devilish intentions will win in the short term. My soul will always be pure of heart. What's on the surface always looks like one big party but inside there is a little boy looking for help and guidance. People say "be a man". Yeah, that's right but it doesn't take away any pain you really go through. I just wanna stay out the way and do music. Most importantly and great father. I don't have any more patience for anything that will cause me to self destruct!!

"When u tired of the f**king devil ruining your life and u hear God speak for the first time. No one knows what I deal with on a day to day," he said. "The average man wouldn't hesitate to blow his f**king brains out but that's the cowards way out... Most won't understand the genius and beauty in change and learning and the people who have devilish intentions will win in the short term."

Brown went on to say that his "soul will always be pure of heart" and that, though he might look like "one big party" on the outside, on the inside "there is a little boy looking for help and guidance."

In the end, Brown said that his goals are to be a good father to his daughter and to "stay out of the way and do music."
