Beauty From Behind - Poem by ifedayo oshin

Find an angry person
And I’ll show you
The ugly one
Ask for a demon
You shall find him lurking conspicously
In the man of fury and rage
Obsessed in the passion
Of hatred and bitterness
Contorted face, distorted frame
Twinkled skin like the wild cat
Countenance disposed like a ferocious lion
Quivering lips, trembling fingers
More deft in actions than stroke sufferers
Polluted veins, broken spleen
Foamy mouth, mad blood
Beautifully horrible a sight
Who can behold?
The angry man the ugly one._______
