Within this gentle heart so red
A beast is bound in chains
It's voice can be heard in my head
Offering to take the reins

It only takes a moment to let go
To have my whole perspective change
My buried anger starts to show
Holding it back just feels so strange

Repression wears off awfully fast
A hidden gear quickly kicks in
Natural fury is free at last
Darkness keeps spilling from within

The light is nowhere to be found
Because I've smothered it with rage
My conscience has gone underground
I buried it inside a cage

Sometimes I don't want to hold back
I'll let this monster out of me
Knowing full well it will attack
If people are smart they will flee
I wrote this poem about my anger, about my darkness. I don't usually let this side of me show blatantly, but it's always there. I've got a terrible, terrible anger that I'll let loose sometimes. Most of the time I'll hold it back, but sometimes I just won't want to. It's a natural part of me, and it has it's place.

Anger is powerful, it's wild, it can be addicting, it can be intoxicating. My anger is like fire. It'll run wild and wreak havoc on just about anything that gets in it's path. It's been a while since I've written anything like this, so it's nice to get back to it.

I rarely deal in absolutes, as is foolish, however, I'd wager that nearly all men have darkness and anger in their hearts. It's best to know the beast and it's purpose rather than to deny or doubt it's existence. Just don't let it consume you, lest you become a monster yourself.

Wonderful theme. Excellent poem. Great work, David.

Everybody has a beast within them. It's better to examine it and know it then to simply pretend it isn't there.

And thanks!
