the animal in me (rough draft)

just as an animal is soothed
by a darkened room,
so i am by the coming of night.

the imprint of my heart
on life's hardness - like leaf
imprints in concrete -
will make a difference

i have more strength
than i realize or want
in any given moment.

Not sure what I'm doing here yet...

but it seemed to be a good idea at the time, since I wanted to join the poetry workshop on Thursday nights. Now, if I can just figure out how to post poetry here, I'll be doing fine and dandy.
