The War Inside

The war inside
is best fought without armor

no need to get all up in arms
over what you have no hold over

pretend to be a hard-shelled crab
but your meat is so softly vulnerable

cooked from within
charred from inflicted self perfection

hope you like the taste
hope you like it done well

see you within your own personal ring of hell

or choose to be
an alternately colored stain
on an otherwise perfect portrait

embrace blemishes
erupt inner interpretations

be your own disgraced brush stroke
paint your own still
life crashing through bold lines

you know your own, so just already own it
