This is one about me at my worst. I wasn’t in control, but over time, I got strong enough to seize it.
I spoke with him the other day,
He just pops up like cancer.
I didn’t open the door this time,
But I still had to answer.
He used to tease me about you,
The terrible things he did.
I was scared of my evil twin,
So there was much left unsaid.
He used to lock me in a cage,
As he terrorized the town.
I watched powerless through the bars,
Crying as he tore you down.
When his evil reign subsided,
He’d torture me for hours.
He’d make me bury my remorse,
All I could do was cower.
He’s just as evil as before,
I could hear it in his voice.
But he couldn’t get inside again,
And he didn’t have a choice.
I’m much stronger than he is now,
And once I proved it to him,
He’s tried to get me time and again,
But I tear him limb from limb.
Our fights were short but savage,
But my resolve is strong as steel.
Now my victories are constant,
And I have less wounds to heal.
He’s too feral to apologize,
But if you’d hand me your dagger,
I’m sorry I was once so weak,
Now I can pass on your anger.
