The Monster Within

I have an anger inside of me
That I have kept inside
Hoping and begging that it won't get loose
Because if it does I won't be able to stop it.

If my anger gets loose
I won't know how to stop it
For I am concentrating too hard
To make sure I can control it.

I have lost control of my anger many times
And it has cost me dearly
I have lost control around those I care for
And many of them are now afraid of me.

Many people say they can help me
But I know they can't
I know they just say that to try to comfort me
It's always been that way and always will be.

I keep feeling the monster within me
Gaining more and more control with each incident
Constantly struggling to get free
Never needing rest and always willing to fight.
