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.
