AngerTransforming from its slumber like a phoenix to the flame,
Roaring to the surface, as it nullifies the brain.
Reason lost in turmoil, calm and patience dashed,
Razor claws or voice, poor emotions slashed.
Hurt wells in the eyes as anger bites the mark,
Love and light now painfully shadowed by the dark.
Angered word or action cannot be undone,
Withered only by the times earth moves round the sun.
As mind doth finally quell the phoenix angered flame,
Guilt arises from its throne to allocate the blame.
Beg forgiveness mind and soul for angered actions wrought,
And take alone the valued lesson of humble patience bought.
Hark the injured ego calling for the eye,
Fuel not mighty anger for this hollow cry,
Sternly set they will and reaffirm the mind,
Of guilt and hurtful feelings when anger is unkind.
