Treasure Island

Neela Nath


Anger


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! !

    Poet Halder, I really loved this poem about anger. Those of us who can control our anger
    are more powerful than a Commander who can control an army. A welled penned write. Thanks. (Report) Reply

    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

    Great work! (Report) Reply

    I love this poem, so easily written...ironical the fact is that you are showing anger to 'anger'...asking him to go away...loved it.. (Report) Reply

    Great expressions about anger. An emotion we all try to drive away and fail miserably. (Report) Reply

    Thats great!
    Perfect thing I found in this one is that..you have made clear demarcation between yourself, your belief and your anger..
    We are not 'we' when we get angry! (Report) Reply
