The two faces of Amanda

I am a walking contradiction

Of lies and misrepresentation

My monster

It speaks to me

Directs me

Strangles me 

I fight and gnash my teeth

The two faces of Amanda

The monster

The warrior

  1. Are you really the monster….or is the monster a part of you….yes, I have a monster that is a part of me. I walk with it, I accept it…do I like him, no. But he’s there, and isn’t going anywhere, so I must get used to him…to a point. Does that mean I’m no longer a warrior, NO. does that mean I’ve given up…NO. It means I no longer fight myself, and no longer drive myself crazy trying to find a way to get rid of the monster, now I just want to tame him.

    I love your poem. I do understand. And yes, I feel like a monster sometimes too. didn’t know I was going to say what I just said, until it spewed forth…but I like it.

    thinking of you.

    1. It is a part of me. That’s where the warrior construct came from. I am always fighting against my monster. I am not to the point of acceptance, I don’t know how. I don’t know if I ever will. To be honest I don’t know if I want to. I am still pouting and stomping my feet. How do I do it Wendy?
