You know my name. Not my story.

There is an animal inside of me
Desperate to run free
Its a tiger with a heated roar
There is an eagle, desperate to soar
There is a wolf, wanting a pack
A bear desperate for a snack.
There is a heart, wanting to be found
A brain ready for the rebound

This is about the ongoing bustle of life. Some things get pushed to the side, like the animal's inside of you.

Bella's love for Edward was like, "Omg. He's hot. He's mine because he sparkles. Now I'll brood the wholle book while I'm with him."

My body's more of this mushy glob of bones and fat that suffocates this tiger/bear/eagle/wolf. The body can't hold the bear forever. ;P
