Like a cord stretched to the point of breaking  
Unstable as a building after a quaking  
My emotions have awakened from rest  
Forming as violent winds headed west
I now know why lions roar  
And bears at times attack  
When safety and comfort is lost  
It reveals the need to fight back
Yet I am no lion, neither a bear  
Whose ways are vicious and primal  
I have reason and intellect  
Keeping me from being vengeful and homicidal
The need for release is growing within me  
But the ensuing carnage must not be  
Hence I am left to bemoan and languish  
Sitting here now full of rage and anguish
