A Poem by The High Poet

Another poem from my crazy mind lol


I am not the man I want to be

So much anger inside of me

Rage and anger is all that I know

Has been with me since I started to grow


I put on a mask that wears a big smile

Yet my anger burns like a funeral pile

Burning my soul with this heated rage

Must not let my monster out of his cage


For if I do, you won't like what you see

The raging monster that is really me

So I try to keep that part of me in the dark

But my monster is strong and has left his mark

Please complete this. I do not know what motivation you need to complete this but I would like to know how this poem ends. I am seeing anger and darkness and chaos and I feel like the story doesn't have to end there. The poem is both raw yet polished--that makes it more, in a way, magical.

Although pertaining heavy themes this poem has rapid fluency caused by the rhyme, I'm not one to discourage rhyming, I'm a fan of the art and therefore find this a vary interesting write.

Anger makes me sad and I don't like to be sad. It's a circle of sadness and anger. Certainly it is unhuman. Good writing, as usual.

I think that your monster can easily work as a metaphor for the darkness in all people and can mean any number of things. I especially like how you make no mention of why the monster is a monster... Anyone can read this and use it as a mirror to hold up to themselves and examine their own monster. Really good stuff. Truly.

Great poem! We all can be full of anger, life is not at all like fairy tales that we once read! I see you take your anger and create. Well done!
