"I Killed A Beast"

Today I killed a beast
though I did not set out to hunt,
I met him on my path
and feared to be his lunch.

Today I killed a beast
who had roared and had a fit,
When an arrow came straight at him 
and he took a direct hit.

Today I killed a beast
a fearsome one so large,
There was no place for me to go
when he began to charge.

Today I killed a beast
oh, I hate when there is strife,
But when a man faces a beast
the man should guard his life.

Today I killed a beast
and now I'm safe and free,
Because the beast I killed today
was the ego inside me.
