Keep It Inside…..

That beast you feel, locked deep within

Shredding your soul with casual contempt

Force it back though it sears your skin

From inside. Tearing pain with each attempt

At freedom. It begs release with silent roar

Climbing higher with vicious blind intent

Hold tight, keep it back with all strength in your core

Though it promises no more than sad lament

How can you trust this creature built of pain

Who claws at your throat, again and again

The beast is strong, it surges, ready to fly

Too hard, no more,Β  let it go

And cry….

Lisa

    Tears are good, but so is laughter. So……………………
    Grief is a little like wind – better out than in!

    Too hard, no more, let it go- That line really got to me. I have to let that pain go; I can’t hold on to it anymore. Thank you
