Anger

Unknown

DSC04791I trudged along life’s pathway

Angry at myself every single day

For falling short of expectations

Of others and my own-in combination

For every minor failure myself I berated

My desire for success never satiated

Disappointment constantly followed me

Failure was a self-fulfilling prophecy

My resentment spiraled up in the sky

Words cannot express how angry was I..

**

One day when the volcano erupted

I realized how my life anger had disrupted

I could not go on with anger bottled inside

I had to face my anger, there was no place to hide.

**

I turned to meditation, learnt to love

Myself, and believe the powers above

My anger subsided in degrees gradual

I discovered I could actually be lovable..

With anger displaced by contentment new

I discovered there was much more I could do

More tasks completed, more goals achieved

The less I resented myself, the more I received

Loving myself had a learning curve steep

At the top of the hill was contentment deep.
