The Beast In Me

The more you fight the more you risk serious injury but the fewer people will try to fuck with you.

The beast in me

Ii capable of anything

But it takes a lot to draw him out

The last time I saw him

He got me hurt

And the time before that

He hurt someone else

I keep him buried

In solitude and introspection

And pray that no one

Comes looking for him

But they sometimes do

And I find myself thinking

Of brawling and blades

Until the madness subsides

Through all the pain

That he’s put me through

I’m glad to have him

In this chapter of life

That is riddled with demons

Who understand nothing

But the wrath of the beast

So I train my body

To be a weapon

I train my mind

To keep the beast chained

And only let him out

When it’s absolutely necessary

This part of me

So black and brutal

Is only human

And thinking on it reminds me

What it is to be a man

On the inside having a temper can be a positive or a negative depending on the situation. If you lose your cool you can quickly end up punching on but if you don’t you look weak and invite stand overs and exploitation. People respect you if you stick up for yourself but it may mean not backing down from a fight you can’t win. The more you fight the more you risk serious injury but the fewer people will try to fuck with you.

It’s no secret that I have a temper. It’s another thing that requires the right approach for the situation at hand. Only let the beast out when it’s the right thing to do.
