Beast

Beast

 

It is just the nature of the beast,

but I do not deny my shadows,

labeling this as good, that as bad

as I seek to learn, to understand.

 

But I do not deny, my shadows,

sometimes, are much harder to accept

as I seek to learn to understand

how all of these parts create the whole.

 

Sometimes, I find it’s hard to accept

the truth I would rather not admit.

How do all these parts create the whole?

Does anyone ever fully know

 

the truth? I would rather not admit,

the more I learn, the more I wonder

does anyone ever fully know

that much of what lies within their soul?

 

The more I learn, the more I wonder,

labeling myself as good or bad,

if much of what lies within my soul

is just the nature of the beast.
