Anger Poem by Scarlet .....


Rating: 3.2

it boils within
slowly poisoning all that it touches
corrupting all that is within
it has now reached a new level
a level I never thought existed
for it has boiled over everything
everything I have
everything I’ve worked to keep
for I am now totally corrupted
drowning in poison
the poison of my life
the poison you all help create
the poison that has been growing within me
anger is that poison
anger is the poison within
the thing that is eating me alive
eating me from within
corrupting every cell of me
turning me in to a corruption
for now I am just a corruption

Anger pulls every inch from within and crushes one like an earthquake crushing the earth. A darkness so entrenched within one can no longer think of the possibility of light if we allow ourselves to be manipulated by this beast. This is a poem that slaps one into reality and perhaps its message will search the senses and bring us out of any such pain. Thank you for sharing such a bold description of a tiger of emotion...Much appreciated.....

And very few understand and control it. In fact they are slave of Anger which is the main cause for all ailments. Wonderful poem. I quote 'anger is the poison within'
