Wounded Tiger

I’m sick and tired of this wounded tiger ruining my life

in pain ready to strike back, fangs extended, snarling

at every perceived cut, stone throwing, maybe a spear

sent in the form of a look. The tiger crouches

ready to attack, enough of this nonsense.

Wounds carried as trophies –

retract your claws –

and get out of my life

take your pain with you,

because you don’t belong

here anymore.

I know who I am now.

  1. Thank you Nicodemas, it’s a powerful message. It’s a challenge to cut out negative thoughts when so many things around us are not right, when we’re suffering. But it’s important to not dwell on it. We can try 🙂

    1. Thank you Takami! You are exactly right, it is a challenge to all of us. No matter what we are facing we need to at least try to be positive. Peace and blessings to you and yours!
