'Listen To Thine Enemy'
Listen to thine enemy
They may have something for you to hear.
Dont get angered and eternalize
Everything that was done or heard.
When anger gets the best of you
Go to God kneel in prayer.
For only He can overcome
Any anger that still is lurking there.
Nothing good comes out of anger
This has been proven of mankind
Time and time again!
Its part of mans past and present history
However, with God, anger always loses in the end.
So listen and embrace
Any enemies you may seem to have.
Thus showing Gods love and light from within
Producing hearts of past enemies
Now forever so Godly glad.

the anger in me runs very deep
it boiles and steams and now i dont sleep
my anger is mine and i can control it
my anger is mine and i dont want to hold it
my boiling point has gone past its level
all i see is red and sights of the devil
i was ready to explode and give my soul to this devil
then a voice spoke to me soft and so gental
a calm went thru me so peacefull and true
my anger inside me had nothing to do
its still deep inside me dormant and quiet
but if i lose my voice i will get very violent
and follow my anger where ever its takes me
the devil will smile cause he'll have his first choice
all evil from below will rejoyce
so heed my warnings to all need beware
do not touch my voice with the glowing red hair

I wish I would just take ahold of anger like a solid square
I could mold it and shape it
I could turn it into the shape of a pear
I could change it around until it looked like a furious bear
I could do anything to better my anger
I didn't do anything though
Sitting back and doing nothing is lazy
I get angry for being lazy
Angry for being angry at being lazy
Anger you ruined my life
You ruined me like a castle
It once stood proud and tall with flags flowing in the wind
Now its all but rubble and the flags ripped off and flying away
The castle represents me
A once proud girl
With dreams in the distance
Then you came along Mr. Angry
You decided to pick me to turn to rubble
I understand now when someone says they would burst your bubble
You bursted it with those flames you tickle me with
The tickle of fury and anger burning up my body and burning everthing in it's way
So I wish I may
I wish I might
That my anger would just dissapate

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! '
