Anger at myself
Anger at everyone else in this world
Why do I get so angry
I have anger over silly, little things
I have anger over big, important things
Anger is building up inside of me
It is going to blow soon
When it does, it will be a disaster
I will be yelling and screaming at the top of my lungs
I may hurt somebody, physically or emotionally
I may hurt myself
Anger can be good for you sometimes
But anger is fear in disguise
If i am so angry, what is it that i am afraid of

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem at a point in my life when I had a lot of built up anger. I have since learned how to deal with it in a healthy way rather than freaking out on people.
