A Lesson In Anger

She was sitting in quiet protest.
She was there to take a stand.
Her mission on this particular day:
to protect her sacred land.

Another person was screaming at her.
I can’t repeat the words he said.
She did now cower, did not respond...
She stared stoically ahead.

When the screamer had finished and departed
I took this woman’s palm
“How did you not get angry? I asked.
“How did you stay so calm?”

The woman looked up at me and smiled
Then immediately sat up straighter.
“I find it easier to swallow my words first,” she said,
“than to have to eat them later.”

It’s true we all face hard times,
But here’s the lesson that she taught...
It is a fool who cannot feel anger...
But it is a wise one who will not.

Night's Lover

Folder: 
Natural life

When darkness falls, She strolls across the rosy stream left behind by sunset, eyes already roaming the horizon.

Her inky hair streams out behind her, a waterfall of indigo.

She watches desperately, pacing back and forth, waiting for her silver lover.

His heralds twinkle his approach, and then he appears.

His magnificience causes her to shiver, with fast-moving clouds scuttling across her velvet skin.

Each night, they meet, and their slow, sweet kisses move the very tides of the earth. 

Heaven bends to shelter them, and their steps move in that eternal dance that time can never change.

I will Get Angry

Anger’s a gift or a curse,


Well, it depends on the stance,


When the situation demands,


Fury’s right, what my mind understands.


 

Raising the voice against injustice,


Like a fierce tiger appears to be bliss,


Anger turns into a celestial facet then,


To fight against corruption.


 

I’ll get angry whenever wrong is done,


I’ll get angry whenever humanity is undone!

The demons rage

This rage inside of me

With my eyes only I can see

The demon laughing at me, while my rage grows inside of thee

I get played by this hate

Swayed, fooled by my so called fate

As water drips from my eyes

As I eat lies off others plate

I do my best to stay undone, by the hate caused by many not 1

But the voice in my head won't rest

Till I beat them to a bloodly mess

I wish to forgive those who wrong, to be happy and free from this hateful song

Yet it seems I'm being played by a creature I know best

I want to be free and release it from my chest

Tears i fight with all my might, yet the lies stand there with no fright

I tell myself I'll get what I deserve, yet it seems lies and lies is all I've earned

They look at me with so simple eyes

Speak the words I want to hear, but it's a surprise!

A joke that was never funny, a disgusting fake honey

That escapes from their mouth, isn't it funny?

I wished to make these lies true, so I was used and broken

Now I'm just a tool

Pity looks now follow me, when my back is turned but I can see

So I spend these days wondering, why do I fight the rage inside of me?

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Umm, work refusing to pay me military discharging me. Not being able to find a job for one reason or another

Anger and Hatred

Anger and hatred fill my soul

Making me slowly mad

Anger and hatred corrupt me,

Feeding from my pain,my grief

Anger and hatred devour me inside

Until all my happy emotions vanish

Until I'll be dead inside

Split

ESCAPING THROUGH THE SKIN

Cut me free

BLEEDING OUT THE SIN

Losing pieces of me

 

 

THIS ONE IS FOR YOU

Just don’t dwell on it too long

FOR WORDS PROVEN UNTRUE

Don’t listen to my song

 

 

IT’S PRETTIER THAN YOU EVER WERE

Forget I said a word

COMPARED TO YOU IT DOESN’T HURT

I know I’m lower than dirt

 

IT’S YOUR FUCKING FAULT

I’ve made some bad choices

YOU’LL BE HAPPY WHEN I’M COLD

Ignore the screaming noises

 

JUST MESS WITH SOMEONE ELSE

Please perfect, I miss you

YOU MADE ME HATE MYSELF

You know that is not true

 

I’M STANDING UP FOR MYSELF

You wouldn’t hurt me for fun

YOU’LL NEVER FUCKING HELP

Secretly you’re sorry for all you’ve done

 

I HOPE YOU HURT UNTIL YOU DIE

I’ll love you till I die

AND I HOPE THE END IS NIE

You could never lie

 

YOU ONLY CARE ABOUT YOURSELF

Secretly you’re crying out for help

YOU PUT MY FEELINGS ON A SHELF

Though I don’t know all you felt

 

YOU THINK YOU’RE WORTH THE WORLD

I could never be the person you deserve

SO SELF RIGHTEOUS IT'S ABSURD

Even before we lost our verve…

 

YOU NEVER LOVED ME

YOU DON’T LOVE ME

Shadows Born of Death

Fire

Sparks

Piercing the shell

 

Ice

Darkness

Clouding vision

 

The world spins

The world fades

And the mind is alone

 

No vision

Yet seeing red

The betrayed retch up their pride

 

Growing colder

Growing darker

Growing smaller

Retreating inside

 

A sea of inky darkness

Drips onto charred pages

 

Wrapped in the stained cocoon

A creature born of death

Will breathe new life soon

The cries to which you were deaf

Will be harbingers of your doom

 

The shadow emerges uncalled

Nothing but a dead-eyed echo

To tear down constructs that are ignorance-walled

There are grudges it can’t let go

 

You got your wish of segregation

When it became something apart from your ilk

Don’t regret the degradation

When the blood flows out like silk

 

 

It’s too late;

YOU CREATED ME

THIS IS YOUR FATE;

YOUR LEGACY

 

 

 

LOOK UPON YOUR WORK AND DIE

Mother Father Why

Those things you’d say that’d creep around my head

Stabbed me in the heart and torn me apart

Why would someone you love, love to hurt you so much

I ask myself everyday the strangest things

Because of what you've done to me

Why give birth to a child your going to abandon

Emotionally then physically

So mother, father can you tell me whats wrong with my mind

You are.
