The monster

I feel as if there is a monster deep inside,

and each time I feel anger,

Sorrow, rage, despair,

the monster grows,

until I fear the monster

Will explode and leave nothing of my

Diminished sanity left.

Each time I cry, or feel sorry

My head explodes,

The monster grows.

Each time I feed my human needs,

The monster grows.

Each time I fight being alive,

The monster grows

Each time I drown in regret and pain,

The monster grows!

And now, I wonder

How much more I can take.
