"...in the end, you've got to become the change you want to see in the world."


Am I allowed to be angry?

To hurt things?

Punch things?

Throw a fit?



Am I allowed to raise my voice?

To yell at you?

Insult you?

Tell you how I feel?



Am I allowed to not be perfect?

To distort my face?

Show emotion?

Cut myself to stop the pain?



Well, I’m telling you now

That I am angry.

I am angry and ready to show myself.

I am angry and want people to care.

Don’t you care?



I’m not perfect.

I have a heart.

I have feelings,

And I’m ready to show you how you made me feel.



I’m ready to yell,

To scream,

To hit,

Until I cry

And you hold me.



I’m ready to be angry

Until you tell me that you’re sorry,

Until you tell me that you love me,

Until I forget what happened

And move on.



I’m ready to be angry

Until you show me that you care.

I'm angry because you hurt me, but you never let me show it. You make me bottle it up, until all I do is hurt and wish it away. I wish you would care.
