Title: I Am Angry
Genre: Poetry
Word count: 217
Rating: PG

***************** I AM ANGRY*************

I am angry
In my anger, there is desolation
A hopelessness which settles on my chest
And reminds me of the bleak weightlessness of space

I am angry at myself
In my uncaring, I have drank the wine of abomination
I have defeated myself and the good I was set for
I am a curse inside my own skin

I am angry in my soul
In my defiance, I have thrown gorgeous paintings
Torn at the bricks in the fireplace
Of the cottage where God comes and I serve

I am angry and forgetful
In my bitterness, I find no peace
When all options seem like dead weights
Boulders that fall and quash the sparrows of my destiny

I am angry and I have turned to look
I see dense darkness and no path beneath my turned feet
I devise my own hell where the devil laughs
I devise my own prison and I live here

I am angry because I eat the bread of demons and ghouls
I accept consequence on this life but cannot bear it
I fool myself, I hate myself
I am the rocky soil

I am anger itself
Not a righteous anger, but a petty anger
The anger which snorts and stamps
And persuades brothers to hate each other

I am angry
