Angry Man

Lord, I give my anger over to You
I want to abide in Your truth
I want peace in my soul
To be no longer the angry fool

I don't want it any more
I want the peace You have in store
Release me from this burdensome yoke
It only makes my spirit choke

Give me peace that washes over me
Enlighten my eyes that I may see
Through the eyes of Your love
Make me gentle as a dove

This anger is of no use
Call my heart into a truce
From my temper give me release
Let me know only Your peace

I am angry and I don't know why
Release me, Lord, is my heart's cry
I need You to take what I can't give
A life of peace I long to live

I need peace beyond measure
Seeking it as a treasure
Let it only be for a just cause
Don't add anger to my list of flaws

Don't let the sun sink on my wrath
I want to walk on peace's path
I surrender my heart to you
Purge me to live the life you want me to

Hi Christian, We're missing you over here now. We know you don't always have access to the net so we understand. Hope to see something from you soon. Loved this piece on anger, each time I re-read it I hear something new. So many people I encounter on a daily basis seem so angry. Sad to say it is no different in my fellowship. I struggled with anger as I grieved the loss of my childhood and the death of loved ones But today I have a peace that I now know is the peace of that surpasses all understanding. That's God's love that cleansed me and it feels great. I started experiencing this peace as I embraced forgiveness. Keep writing for the Lord. God bless!

Uncontrolled anger is very dangerous and humiliating. God bless and keep you, friend.

Christian Coutts, anger is a rare subject for a poem and it's touching. Great work. Hope to read more about other emotions.
