Anger hurts, demeans
bites, and screams
tortures, plots revenge,
and assumes the unscene.

It boils and it burns
til it destroys what the other yearns.
It disrespects, ignores,
forgets, and bores.

We let it consume us,
let it misuse us.
We are in control,
don't let anger take that role.

Thank you so much! It took a lot to get to the point of realization that I did indeed have control of my anger.

This poem was very wisely written. I applaud you both for your intelligence pertaining to the emotion and your writing ability. The Buddha said, “Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”
