The Beast Within…

Lurking in the shadows,
Is the beast within.

With eyes wide-open,
It is docile and tame.

With eyes wide-shut,
It is wild and savage.

Denial fuels,
Its flames.

On the plateau,
The shadow is clear.

Acceptance,
Decreases its power.

The chromosome,
Must be held in check.

Lest it cease,
To exist.

The majority win,
The war.

The few that lose,
Beg the question:

Is it valid,
Or is there another way?

The future,
Holds the answer.

    It could even have been written by my recent thoughts!
    I declare you a mind reader!

  3. This post makes us think deeply. I find your words “Acceptance, Decreases its power” quite profound. Would love to practice this.
    Many thanks.
