Anger - Poem by DICKSON MSETI

It’s a source of revenge,
Master of destruction,
It brings separation,
Encourage discrimination,
The source of pain,
Brings slavery,
Yeah, mental slavery.
Emotion is the enemy of facts,
Feelings is the darkness of reality,
Emotions, feelings are the wrong way of decision,
Let Anger not be the source of decision making,
Focus on the truth, reality and facts.

    Your logic is impeccable but suppressed anger festers.
    Far better to express it verbally.Than wait for the inevitable explosion

    With anger you will aways be understood
    Because people will get the point.

    You will become one of Afrca's most renowned poets in a jiffy. This poem is didactic. If any body calls this a simple poem, refer them to read poems from Walt Whitman and Benjamin Zephaniah okay? Continue!
