    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 reins of Light,
    my Heart makes gallop this Beast of might.
    Traversing the distance to Fact from Idea
    makes the Beast sweat antidotes for 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, sow once again
    and you'll reap a Character that rivals Men.
    And Character thus made, 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 reins, winged chariot of Wind,
    and ride as Master of the Beast within.

    This was a deep write, as I myslef can identify with the "Beast With In". It coincides with the thought that "I am my own worst enemy" and I have lived in the prison of my own mental fears to know what you are talking about here.

    "I'll hold the Reins, Winged Chariot of Mind" This line here, really solidifies the movement, of not being overtaken by the destructional fears that the beast lives in. You show us here, that you will not allow him to hold presidence in your life, that your life is but your own, and that my friend is a lesson I myself have learned here very recently!

    Unchecked and Unbridled....powerful words here.


    :spinstar: Harry, you have been well heard and recieved friend!!!

    May I email this to myself?

    Rich – You are right Rich. To release the creativity in ourselves, we often have to ride that Beast. Riding it promotes our creativity and our salvation as poets. Not riding it makes our creativity impotent and imbues it with a thousand fears. To ride or not to ride! Choose one! Thanks Rich. Namyh

    4Everluv – I hope this comes in handy when most needed. I’m so very glad you enjoyed this. And if you tend to ride the Beast yourself, hold tight for when it broncs. That way, it won’t throw ya. Thanks for your words and for your enjoyment. HH
