Excerpt from the poem "Anger"
Tumultuous atmosphere full of strife
Bitterness is hatred that destroys life.
Most anger is selfish hatred turned inside out;
Can burst if held in, so one must have to shout.
...Your anger can’t be contained like a consuming fire;
Causing all who cross your path to prematurely expire.
Tightened arteries, anger can’t push its way through;
The vessel is too small and it will eventually kill you.
Cancer, AIDS, drunk driving, diabetes and stroke;
When compared to anger’s fire, seem like just smoke.
Despite the deaths from the previous every year;
Anger, bitterness and unforgiveness kill many more I fear.
