I’m not sure which are worse
the monsters surrounding me
or those that I surround

one can surely kill my body

bullets, rocks and fists
even words may harm
yet the pain must end
with the beating

but those others kill my soul

demons clutch and writhe
squirming any hole
a no holds barred attack
death alone will end

if one over one could choose
would choose neither terror
but cling instead to life
