Topic: Anger (01/24/05)

TITLE: Anger that abounds

Anger is nothing more,
than a fleeting emotion.
That wells up inside,
the loneliest of hearts.
For most of their lives
contains a nothingness.
And anger is a way of
hiding their emptiness.
For their anger is nothing more,
than words that should be unspoken.
That tends to keep us all apart.
Anger is a form of protection
that some deem necessary,
to help them justify their existence.
That they use to control,
towards the slightest of resistance.
Anger is yet but for a fleeting moment.
That comes and goes within the
whim of the words spoken.
And yet, at times, left to be said,
anger is nothing more,
than emotional dread.
Anger can be the cause of
diffcult times ahead,
and easy for unwanted emotions
to well up instead.
Instead of peace that can
be easliy found,
by just placing your knees
upon the ground.
For it is said that God can erase the anger that abounds,
for those who place their knees
upon the ground.
But God wants not only the saved
to be blessed,
but also those who placed anger
above the rest.
So fear not the anger that is
in your heart,for with Godís love
that anger shall depart.

I love this line:

Instead of peace that can be easliy found,
by just placing your knees upon the ground.

Thanks for sharing,

This poem lacks the elements that make a good poem such delight and instruction. Anger here is depicted as a bad thing when it's really the second of sound emotional stability. Try again.
