The Rage of the Soul


Those times, when the rage comes around,
so great, it's near impossible to control,
don't let the despair overcome you; know
it's the god within your soul;

It's the force of creation awakening
there, trapped in the shell of the human --
it's the sustaining spirit in
despair, for the bondage it suffers,
the blindness of flesh,
the myth of happy-ever-after,
the rope of time,
the windowless buildings
of society's rights
and wrongs.


Like all caged beasts, it is prone to rebellion.
Ride the wave of its energy, channel
it through the inlets and byways
of art and society.  Put it to use,
so it doesn't use you, and it will
be 
the beauty that you leave
on the face of the earth.
