I Should Have Screamed Too - Poem by Della Perry

To rage, scream, yell, bellow
From the pit of a hellish stomach
Shake punching hands in the thick atmosphere
Stare that alien down, snake eye, glass him in the pie hole
Blow a gasket, blow my top,
Flip my insanity lid
Hit the roof, rant, rave, rail
Go berserk, go mad
Seethe, shout, swear!
For you were all there, without a care
And not one saw me
Or offered a friendly hand
When my childhood rocked in the storms of madness and grief.
These are the emotions I should have shown
Related to you all
For false smiles, and little mouse squeaks
Never helped me at all!
