The Beast Within

The Beast Within

A Poem by Michael Wright



This beast lives within me

It lays just beneath my skin

It knows my weaknesses

It does not care for the strengths

No energy will kill it

No pills will bring a cure

My control is but an illusion

It brings the pain

It wont let me Hide

Steps upon the triggers

burning from inside

You have beaten me

You have battered me

You have abused me

You will SHALL not win

For the day you win

My eyes will close forever

Author's Note

Michael Wright
I wrote this after a period of depression from my chronic illness and meds had put me into. I "lost" a period of time last year. This was written to feel a fight within, to deal with my Fibromyalgia.

Michael, my wife deals with the pain of fibromyalgia also so I know of it, but cannot pretend to KNOW it. Your write practically summarizes the feelings she expresses to me about the pain, so it touched me deeply. I am gladly accepting your friend request, but I have to ask that you send me read requests for whatever you wish me to review of it may get lost in the shuffle. Nice to 'meet' you, sir! take care...dan

I related to this on a personal level having dealt with my bi-polar for so many years. But they say time heals all wounds one way or another. My best defense has been to keep busy.
