The anger was born out of injustice. It first attacked when her parents decided she did not need the protection and unity of marriage. Through the decision of divorce, they left her vulnerable. Love was replaced with hate, unity of a family was disrupted into chaos, and she was left torn between a mother and a father. Her heart, now wounded from the people she trusted the most, was beating to a different rhythm. The darkness crowded in and the tempter whispered to her to let the anger soothe her pain.
Anger quickly became her drug of choice. She felt entitled to it. The wrongs against her fueled each injection. The fake friends at her school, the hypocritical Christians at her church, and the boyfriend who crushed her heart were all accomplices to her addiction. The ways of the world overshadowed her and claimed her as their own.
Anger continues to flaunt its victories over forgiveness and love, strutting confidently in the injustices of life. How many more souls will it claim before we view it as a true enemy?
