Anger or short temper; whatever is the name;
It is sure to hang heads in shame.
This leaves behind rational thinking.
What it carries along is mind blocking!
Anger suffers from sanity blindness.
Its outburst is ridiculed as sheer madness.
Anger will never reach a correct decision.
It always attracts strong opposition.
All it earns is total displeasure.
More often than not, this leads to discomfiture.
This frustration reaches frightening heights.
Fall from that altitude, definitely hurts.
Let not anger engulf you.
And do something dangerously new.
To keep disaster at bay;
Anger management is the best way.

Letting Off Steam
We all have our own ways of letting off steam
Some grow very angry and at those nearby scream
Whilst others will punch you or kick at a wall
The potential for anger that can lead to violence it is in us all.
Some people their anger manage to suppress
Though illness can grow out of bottled up stress
In people who suppress their feelings cancer is known to grow
And due to such an illness death is painful and slow.
Some people their anger cannot seem to control
And since anger can block out the light from the soul
For assault and battery which is a serious crime
In jail they are destined for to spend some time.
By the actions we take and the things that we say
We all let off steam in a different way
And though with anger it never is easy to win
Perhaps 'tis better for you to air it than keeping it in.

You can't Win a Gutter War! (second draft)
(If one becomes Evil
in order to defeat it
you step down
in the gutter
a poison tree 1
saw limbs of connection
of sour grapes
of BLT ala Merde
at fearsome scenes
Dressed to Kill
More of the Same
all dressed up with nowhere to
the self imprisoned
flaring to boil
the fires burn
Q. Why choose Anger over Fear?
(in 25 words or less)
A. 'Because it feels empowering and anger tastes better
but ANGER is ADDICTIVE
a good servant
a BAD MASTER
is to drink a cup of poison
hoping it kills
your enemy' 2
Let the the Buyer Beware
Consumers of Anger
may be consumed
by that 'enemy within'
'Shop til you Drop! '

You lie to me again
You think Ill never know
With every lie you tell me
My anger only grows
It bubbles under the surface
I want no one to see
The anger that is simmering
Right inside of me
My anger starts to heat
You act like youve done no wrong
But you did
I trusted you all along
My anger consumes me
I am blind with rage
I focus on my book
As I turn the page
I usually let my anger seep
Slowly out of me
But today it wont wait
It longs to be free
I start yelling
I just explode
Everyone is staring
I dont know where to go
I start running
Away from you
You cause pain
I know what you can do
Im still running
From my pain
I will keep running
Until we meet again
