Abstaining from pain.

I was so full of anger

just directed at me

i could stand it no longer

from myself i could not flee


Pushing me to action 

i took up a weapon

Careing not of the reactions

I used that agression


The scars i bear now

I brandish publicly

they tell a tale of how

I'd rather take it out on me


I'm not afraid of censure

If this sounds like advice

I do say that your first venture

is to think about it twice


How was i supposed to explain

to my little daughter

What those marks on me contain

When blind rage was the animator


So................  I stopped

Tho the urge never left

other means i did adopt

Of which i've become quite deft.
