The Monster Inside

There are darksome days Those storms we all must ride But the greatest storm of all Is the monster tucked inside. It brings out the worst in you When sullen days would creep Its like a raging storm reposing In a gladsome heart so deep. Only in moments to come alive When emotions tough are grind But its hard to tame the fires Of a proud and monstrous mind.

    I enjoyed reading the poem and the comments. We all have our monsters to battle. Well presented and thought provoking piece.

    I do believe it stems from the way life evolved on this planet. Emotions are wonderful if we can deal with them sanely. I often wonder why some people seem vicious for no reason--the 1%. Then, I also understand why others are hurt and angry. All in all, the anger out there is a message that is telling those who will listen that the world should be a better place for the 99%. Your poem is elegant.
