I am a creature of calmness,
And after too many broken bones – fear.
I prefer to avoid conflicts,
Especially with the ones I hold dear.
I don’t like the edgy stiffness,
The heart that jumps to my throat.
And canines that I show regardless
of who and what has deserved.
My nature might come from kindness,
But my tongue was forged in hell.
And in battle I’m cruel and mindless
Of the things I ruin and tell.
I am a creature of passion,
And after too many guilt trips – sneer.
I prefer to avoid quarrels,
Especially when it’s so easy to kill.
