Anger Poem by Neela Nath

You are my great foe!
Thousand times I tried to drive you out,
But you didn't go!
Your volcanic power burnt
My friend's soul.
Your torrential words
Have flown my happy home;
You made me an island,
Where there is none except
My only pet, my Belief!
He nourishes my wounds,
And calms my feverish days!
So, I am alive!
I want to leave you,
Go away, and don't stay any longer!
You the brutal force,
You are my anger! !

    The one emotion that we do our best to deny and repel but which always seems to be living their in the shadows waiting to explode like a beast. Your fight with anger is one of the souls great battle

    Thats great!
    Perfect thing I found in this one is have made clear demarcation between yourself, your belief and your anger..
