Favorite Quote:
"And though she be but little, she is fierce."- Shakespeare


It starts out like a baby seed

And as life goes on and on and on

              I let it grow

              I feed it with

Frustration and the displeasure I feel

          I let that baby seed grow

 

It grew and grew and grew and grew

Into a big, big serpent

And I wondered

                    Where did it come from?

 

Whenever

My sister or my brother or my cat

Frustrates me

It rises up from the

Very innermost part of me

 

Like a lion

The growl starts deep within me

And it gets louder and bigger

Until there's huffing and puffing

And tears

That beast pops out of my mouth

 

It swarms me

It suffocates

I cannot breathe

I struggle back and forth to GET IT OFF

I struggle until I

EXPLODE
