Fragile beast
so hard to break
Fragile beast
never to wake

Fragile beast
his life so still
Fragile beast
losing his will

Fragile beast
no lie to hide
Fragile beast
heart open wide

Fragile beast
a shining star?
Fragile beast
his body at war

    No matter how tough we think we are there is something somewhere that can bring us down. Outstanding writing Gareth. Love, Carol

    We certainly do become fragile when we open our hearts. If injured, it can destroy our will to move forward. But when one's own body is "at war" with itself, our future is in God's hands. Very moving, Gareth! Love, Carolyn

    Gareth... It is always a pleasure to read your words and thoughts... 'Fragile Beast'... yes, what seperates Man from Beast... That, which makes us in God's Image - Grants us 'Peace'... (Our Emotions, Our Intellect, Our Ability to Know, who and just what we are)I See the Struggle of the beast, So hard to Break... I say let it rise a Shining Star... This Poem Flows Beautifully...
