A Fearsome Thing

I raged like a bear in a cage
With my brain like a warplane,
Heart like the devil in chains.
And I screamed from the pain
of my claws like a saw
Tearing up all my veins,
In the fight.
In the dark,
I was mean and defensive,
I fought the world
Til the world backed off…
Til I stood all alone in the ring
A fearsome thing.
