Anger - Poem by Sally Plumb Plumb

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. (Report) Reply
