The Beast Of LIfe

The Beast Of LIfe

A Poem by Olivia Capri
"

A poem I wrote when I was feeling, just, down on life.

"

I will stay here and never leave,

These icy clear waters, and

Beauty so deep

The name of this place,            

Has no importance at all,

But in this place there’s,

No pain, no anger, no disappointment

Yes, I very much like it here,

I don’t think I’ll ever leave,

Because leaving this depth of slumber,

Will only release the beast

The beast of life is angry,

He hunts, hurts, and kills,

I know I’m not in his grasp,

Because I have the savior

I know I must now wake,

And face the endless day,

Where temptation awaits my way

I understand that life is hurtful, but

Know I know that without it,

The hurt wouldn’t be as wonderful as it is

Not one bit, not at all

I love this poem. It depicts a very moving emotion that is so hard to put into words but I think you've done a great job at that!

I think you did a wonderful job! It is a sad poem, but also can be very true. It is very well written... is it your first poem? You selected fitting metaphors, and your meter is on a good beat for the subject it is talking about. =)
