Becoming poetry

wolves that feed
my inner world
cause me to rebel
-take a stance
fight or fly
win or lose
laugh or cry
-become  poetry
I beat it
till it speaks
an acceptable language
-squash it in moulds
to create formats
-looks different
from my inner suffering
-gives me a mask
to hide my pain
-is hailed as creativity
becomes poetry
