I CONQUER Me! Jeptha’s Journal -An Ongoing Tale Chapter 166


WISPY! My heart hurts for you! I am Beast. I am not Rage. I AM SORROW. Wispy!  I should have Fought the warrior for you! Agghh. Such pain. 

I hear the villages alive with good times! It is a full moon AND I am sad! 

I weep. I am Beast. I dare not cry out in pain. I will upset those who have love.

Wispy. I loved you. The village women chased me and beckoned me near. I stayed far away. One looked like you, Wispy. I say to myself. I will not replace Wispy with a same looker.

Brother says go explore the forest and conquer big things. 

I conquer me. The moon is full and has no power. I control me in full moon. I still hurt inside but moon is not my master.


Tonight is first night I control myself when moon is full. It still hard to think right thoughts. 

I feel like Shepherd Crook Man is near. The night is peaceful now. 

I AM BEAST. I am not controlled by moon. I hurt a lot to stand still. 

One day I want to be Jeptha when I look in still water.

I will listen to Brother. I explore. I run through the forest. I conquer me.

Jeptha Berengar, The Beast

  1. Thank you for reading! Would you like for me to write about you as a character? Perhaps you could contact me with one! I appreciate your continued investment in Brother’s Campfire!

    1. I think he does as well, (Suzanne?) There will be a back story to why he said this but I want it to be just right. It is as if I were pleasantly pondering.

  2. Very good, Jepthah. Each person is their own hardest enemy to conquer and control. You have grown a lot and I think the Shepherd’s Crook Man would be very pleased with you.
