Dr John Celes
On Anger in Life
Your anger over such small things
should not hurt parents, siblings much,
for they have share in your success,
whether you accept it or not.
Discontentment cannot help much;
Emotion anger can harm one;
Why fret and fume and curse in vain?
You have a part if things go wrong!
But things needn’t happen how we want;
A lot of factors operate;
Just smile if success smiles on you;
Laugh at your troubles that crop up.
The seething fire anger can
just burn your heart, turn mind awry;
Control your anger if you can;
Most anger can be silly, man!
