Anger


Anger takes a hold of me and makes me what I’m not
It makes me say what I don’t mean to ones I know and love
My anger is so powerful that my body becomes an inferno
Boiling away and eating at my sanity and what little love I’ve got

Anger takes a hold of me right around the neck
It slowly begins to strangle me till there’s no compassion left
It turns me into an animal I never meant to be
I wish there was something I could do to tame this animal inside of me

Anger takes a hold of me and makes me hurt ones I love
It takes a hold of me and makes me hurt myself
It makes me love nothing more than shedding much more blood
Be it that of an enemy or someone I truly love

Anger takes a hold of me destroying my whole life
It takes away my sanity and leaves a monster in its wake
It takes such a toll on my health it’s eating at my soul I fear my time is spent
For death hath taken hold of me no that there’s no more anger left

This is to the ones I’ve hurt
The ones I truly love
The ones I never meant to hurt
I’m sorry...

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
