The Beast I Hate

The Beast I Hate

A Poem by D.J. Anderson

I look in the mirror and I see a beast
If I ignore, on my soul it will feast
I cannot stand it, kill it, or even demand it
It lurks beneath stalking and waiting
Brooding, lusting, and even hating
My humanity fading into the black
The evil within will make me crack
Out with the demon to take over all
In with the human for the eternal fall
Oh well then, it must be my fate
This thing IS the beast I hate
