    The Beast Within

    The Beast within me walks the Earth
    thru rains of joy, thru smokes of mirth
    dragging behind the dregs of Men-
    Self doubt, Despair, even Lust's mayhem.

    Unchecked, unbridled it destroys Ideas
    by injecting its venom of a thousand Fears
    which paralyze and stifle Man's thoughts of gain,
    strangling even seeds of a poisoned brain.

    Out from the Night with reigns of Light
    my Heart makes gallop this Beast of might
    traversing the distance to Fact from Idea
    as the Beast sweats antidotes of a thousand Fears.

    For to turn an Idea into a Fact,
    it must be sowed to reap an Act
    which in turn when sowed, as you may have it,
    is the Act giving birth to a brand new Habit.

    Now take that Habit and sow it again
    and you'll reap a Character that rivals Men.
    And Character thus sowed, a Fact to see,
    can make you inherit a Destiny.

    No Dream will turn to dust this hour.
    I'll not let loose the Beast or cower.
    I'll hold the reigns, winged chariot of Wind,
    and ride as Master of the Beast within.

    HH

    Waz – Just as we must fight our battles one at a time, it seems we must do the same with our fears. Perhaps somewhere in between lies the inspiration for that creative flair. I would hope so. Thanks for the input of your much appreciated wit. Namyh/HH.
