Like a wild animal
suddenly trapped inside a cage
I surprise myself sometimes
as I’m caught in my own rage
Within a fragile second
I will change if I’m attacked
So don’t let my smile fool you,
you should know that I’ll fight back!

When left no other option, you do what you must do.
Just make sure you hurt them more than they hurt you !
Ha ! 🙂
Love it Paul!
I look back when I was a young girl in an abusive relationship and wonder why I just took it. I got a chance to tell him years later, I never would again. 😉
I understand these kind of feelings. I can be like that, especially if I am feeling bullied. It is good honest writing that makes us more approachable. ❤
I know that this stems from my earlier days of being abused and not fighting back. I remember just sitting there and taking it. I never even got angry and tried to fight back. I am not sure if I was too scared or thought it would make it worse, or what. But now I think that I have a snapping point of zero to sixty because of it. And I really don’t like that about myself. But I know beyond the shadow of a doubt, I’d fight back in any situation. Kinda sad. This wasn’t a prideful poem, it was just a warning. 😉
We all have the potential to defend those we love. We also need to learn to defend ourselves better than we often do. Hugs and thank you.
So Glad you commented cuz I needed to tell you something!
Not sure when I wrote this or why. Somehow I accidentally posted this one before my Happy New Year one!
But anyway I just went to your site and it is all black. Not sure if it is just me or you changed the design, but I can’t see your words?? I wanted to visit you and couldn’t see your posts! Check it out and let me know if it is my browser or if you need to adjust something!
Thanks! Will go check it now!
A great way to start the year …love it
I like the attitude!
I actually accidentally posted this today. I as going for a more positive attitude. Lol. I must have been in a very different place when I wrote that one! Lol.
” a cuddly teddy you are, but when poked you become a bear”.
” we all have our buttons, sometimes though we forget to take time for ourselves so these buttons keep from becoming broken”.
So funny. I don’t remember why I even wrote this. It was still waiting to be edited. I didn’t feel as if it was finished maybe?
