My Anger


Anger simmers through cracks of ego
Like the reflection calling the subject evil
Sneering from behind a veil of reason
Secretly plotting spiritual treason
Heightened sense of frailties and faults
The plan is uncertain but the goal is assaults
With the politest perversion repeatedly pounce
While my sincerest intent I gladly announce
Anger soaks and coats like crude oil
Saturating Mother Nature's priceless toil
It cakes and kills natural environments made beautiful through time
Leaving little in its aftermath except for viciously toxic grime
Ultimately anger offers only the necessity to heal
To ignite compassion within the dangerous bleakness that I cling to and I feel
To make my choice resonate through the actions that I take
Not due to guilt or self righteous piety but for my happiness' sake.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
