Outside Looking In

A hideous beast
With fangs and claws
An angry thing
With snarling jaws
It can't be tamed
Or roped or caged
Its entire being
Consumed by rage

A weak little thing
So lost and sad
Behind a wall
Thought ironclad
With tears aplenty
With little hope
A tired being
Unable to cope

A mighty warrior
Strong and assured
Proud of the trials
It has endured
Borderline braggart
With thoughts to speak
High expectations
For all the weak

These three who battle
And hope to win
Ought not to fight
Ought make amends
For I discover
To my chagrin
I am on the outside
I am looking in
