Yes! There is a time to be angry. Thanks for sharing this meaningful poem.

Very profound take on the subject. Great message and well-done.

Very enlightening musings on appropriate anger.

I'd have liked to see more poetic language here--perhaps stronger imagery, or some metaphor. I love free verse, but it stands out even further when it reads substantially differently from prose.

The conlcusions you came to in the end set a perfect tone for the poem overall, which almost reads like a Psalm. Quite nice.

Justified anger for the down-trodden is reflected in God's word, and you did a beautiful job pointing out that kind of anger can only be useful once we lay down our own selfish intentions. Very intuitive thinking.

You touched a lot of hot spots in this Christian today. Thanks for sharing this.

Extremely thought-provoking. This was a great read.
Your poem is very deep and convicting as well, for us to be sinlessly angry for what makes God angry.

That last stanza is just gorgeous. Well done overall, but that end really jumped out to me.
