within him a monster
 
clamoring to come out
 
from slight, hurt, anger
 
where all beasts sprout
 
a fiend he must conquer
 
tame it; grip its snout
 
prove that he's  stronger
 
the master without a doubt
 
base emotions the root of evil
 
of all strife and upheaval

Oppressive beast! It's not easy to defeat.
