What do you think this poem is about?

For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.


Anger threatens
and bursts throught fast.
The swelling breast
stretches the sinews
of all being.
With strife the builds
of some betrayel clings
to mind, a length
of memory springs
bringing into combat
all focuses of strength.

Restrained the sighing heart
descends the peak,
resting uneasily
and declaring weak.

    I’ve often heard that anger is a negative, thus unhealthy emotion. If one gets angry, he should not stay angry, but release it. Good poem.

    all focuses of strength
