All my fury is gathered here
Clenched fists wound back to strike deftly
A vicious ritual gift
Of power for my enemy

The insidious worm that works its way through guts
and around spines
A patient lurker formed of equal parts
loathing and time

Bearing my sorrow
Drinking my rage
Fuelling nothing except pain

Exhausted from the release
When it’s over, I am empty and numb
Purging, the transfer is complete
He is growing, my resistance succumbs

His unfurling shadow, scowling, posturing
Looming insolent
Witness to his rapid and smug dissipation
His accomplished intent

Digging myself out of this shallow grave
I breathe in a sobering clarity
Will I be strong enough to retain this realization indefinitely?

To live with the echoing shame of such failure
Constant, overwhelming
Locked into an endless cycle of self-hatred
Forever relapsing

Enough! Now:
I reclaim the essence of myself
The humble, patient man I know
To become committed to the peace
A true warrior given strength to grow
