    Primal Screams

    There is a rage in all of us deep down
    Something so primal it can tear through, sometimes.
    We can repress it.
    Swallow it, and refuse to give in.
    It will always show, never to kneel before us
    through all our sophistication and perceived domination
    It will rear its beastly teeth.
    Overcome the best of us.
    In one fleeting moment, we will regress to a point of

    Animosity

    Deep down, we live for it.

    I liked this, darth. I think you've got something there.
    Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty

    This one could use a little more detail and a little less abstraction. "Beastly teeth" is the only image and not all that original. Cf. William Carlos Williams: "No ideas except in things." There are exceptions, of course, such as "Paradiso," the 2002 poem by Kenneth Koch. Then again, neither one of us is Kenneth Koch.
