Favorite Quote:
"We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided." Dumbledore, Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling.


My vision blurred with
red and darkness,
Heart pounding so fast
That my pulse is sounded
Thump, Thump; Thump, Thump

Stomach knotted and twisted,
Growing bigger by the minute
My heart seems to travel north
Lodging itself deep in my throat

I am muted.

It hurts to breathe,
I gulp for air,
Though I cannot see,
I give a glassy stare

Patience only lasts so long...
And now mine seems to have gone.
Fear of what I could do next,
I clench my fists,
Standing motionless

Empty now except for rage,
My mind slowly skips a page,
Going to what happens next
Like a child reads through a text (book)

I see the end
and in truth, I know
I could never act just so
Temptation may be strong
But true reason will overcome.

For anyone who feels anger, I tried to capture the effect.
