Inner Beasts

In everyone there is a beast trying to get out.

Like poison;

Paralyzing inner spirit,
it attacks: A roaring, clawing manticore,
composed of lies and anger and pain.
I tried to tame it by myself.
But the only one I was fooling was me.

    1. Charlotte, I also think the "beast" gets louder the more one tries to subdue it. This poem is very relevant to me, too, at the moment which is why I wrote it. But hey, 'Never alone!'
